Games to Play in Kindergarten
Wild Goose Chase
This is an out-and-out outdoor kindergarten game. Have the kids sit in a circle in the garden or in any open area. Ensure that the children face inward while forming a circle. Then one of them will be the picker, who will walk around the circle. He or she taps each one sitting in the circle and say 'duck'.
Occasionally, that kid will say 'goose'. The one who has been called a goose gets up and chases the picker. If the picker sits in the vacant place left by the goose before the goose gets him, the goose becomes the picker. If the goose is not able to catch the picker, the goose takes his or her original place. It's a great way to develop alertness among kids.
In this game, just don't care about the eggs. Let them break. This is a simple game, where you ask the kids to first stand facing each other. Then, ask them to toss the egg back and forth between each other. Let's say after a round of 5 tosses, they take a step back. It is not an educational game, but kids will learn control and more importantly, team work.
There is no rule that you should have only one piece on the board for finishing the game. Thus, if and when you cannot think of anything else, checkers can come to your rescue.
