My kids love Freeze Tag even though they get a little rambunctious and forget to freeze, Hide and seek, red light green light, and ring around the Rosy. I have been playing Ring around the rosy with them since before they could really walk. They loved falling on my chest and I loved the baby laughs I got from it.

Awww, my favorites were Ring Around the Rosie and Duck Duck Goose! I have always heard to channel your inner child and make up your own too!! :-)

Hope this helps!

Freeze Tag, Capture the Flag, Easter Eggs, Red Light Green Light, Marco Polo in the swimming pool. My kids, my niece and all my nephews all play a game my brother -in-law made up...he has a huge slingshot that takes two people to use...he and my dad pull it back while another person puts a water ballon in it...The kids have to catch it...its hilarious!!!...and I still play it with them
