It’s summer! The days are longer, and we’ve all been inside for months. Beat the boredom with some social-distancing games that keep you and your kiddos six feet apart.
How to play: Grab a few friends, more than three is ideal, and give everybody a pool noodle. When someone is "it" they have to tag their buddies by using the end of the noodle. Soft and bendy so nobody gets hurt, but also social-distanced approved so no one comes too close!
Kick It with Kickball
How to play: A popular pastime, kickball is a smart way to get a larger group of your child's buddies together (ideal for more than five). Meet at a local field so there's plenty of open space and bring your pool noodles to use as bases or for keeping the distance when kids are waiting in line to kick the ball.
How to play: Depending on your kids' ages (siblings on both sides of the screen can play), you can start basic with a clue like, "Find something that starts with an A, B, C ….. Z." Or you can have kids search for items they are grateful for, like something that's their favorite color.
How to play: Use painters tape and crepe paper streamers, construct a zig-zagging maze down the hall, in the driveway or in the backyard. Attach to your walls from one side to the other in any order variation. The tape or paper should create a maze so the kids playing have to try to get from one end to the other without breaking the tape or paper.
Enjoy these games with your family and friends, while staying a safe distance apart. For more information on the finest homes in the Palm Beaches, contact a Tauber Real Estate Services specialist at 561-626-4633.
