Fun Games to Keep Tweens Entertained

While transitioning from childhood to the teen years, kids can be quite moody, and as their interests change, you will have to come up with new ways to keep them entertained. Moreover, there is also the danger of them becoming addicted to video games. In what follows, we will inspire you with some cool games that will keep your kids entertained, without any gadgets or modern technologies.

Scavenger hunt

This is a fun game is you live in a house with a yard or a friendly neighborhood, or it can also be a fun camp game. The rules are simple. All you have to do is come up with a list of tasks for your kids to do. You can hide some objects in the surrounding areas and have the kids search for those items. To make things more fun, you can also include some dares in the hunt, like climbing trees or taking pictures or certain neighbors.

Worewolves in the village

This game is a variation of the murder in the dark game, except it doesn’t require shutting off the light. All you need are some playing cards (one for each player). The Ace will be the werewolf, and the rest will be the villagers. You also need a storyteller who doesn’t draw cards, but he needs to tell the story. As the adult, you can be the storyteller until the kids understand the game. Each kid then draws a card. After that, the storyteller says that the night is upon them, and they must all close their eyes. Next, the storyteller will say that there is a werewolf roaming in the village. At that point, the person who drew the Ace must open their eyes and quietly point to a player that they have chosen as their “prey”. Then the werewolf will also close their eyes. Next the storyteller says that morning has come and everyone wakes up except for the person chosen by the werewolf, who is now dead. At this point the villagers must debate who they think that the werewolf is and chose a person, who will be hanged. The person who was killed by the werewolf can participate in the discussion as a ghost, but he does not have a vote. If the villagers guess who the werewolf is and they “hang” them, the game is over and the villagers win. If not, the night comes again, and the werewolf will chose another prey. This continues until the villagers discover the werewolf, or until the werewolf kills everybody, at which point the werewolf wins.

Capture the flag

Tweens may be bored with classic outdoor games such as Hide and seek or Tag. They might even be bored with the classic capture the flag game. However, capture the flag is a complex game, and if you put your imagination to the test, you can come up with countless variations. If you are not very creative, you can simply buy the Redux game, which comes with modern glowing props that allow for the game to be played in the dark. This automatically makes the game more interesting and to make things even more fun, it also comes with some very creative story variations.
