Streets and Alleys is great as camping games for kids, playground games and child outdoor party ideas.
Each team stands side by side, arms outstretched, and hold hands, to form 3 rows.
Each team faces front with about 5 feet between rows - this forms "streets".
The leader shouts, "one, two, three, GO!" and the runner runs down the streets and the chaser chases her.
The leader can call out "alley" if she wants.
Players who are running and chasing have to run down the streets or alleys. They cannot duck under the other player's arms.
The leader will continue to call out either streets or alleys and the players have to run that way.
Once the runner is caught, a new round begins with a new chaser, leader and runner.
This is definitely fast paced and will keep the kids running around a good bit.
Have fun playing streets and alleys!
An adult or older child is the leader and blindfolds one player. She sits on the floor and gets a rolled up newspaper so she can guard her treasure pile placed in front of her.
The other players form a circle around the blindfolded player. One by one, each player tries to quietly steal things from the treasure pile without being tagged.
If the player gets tagged, he must put his treasure back in the pile. If he's not tagged, he gets to keep what he got.
The winner is the person who has the most goodies. But, if the blindfolded player has tagged all the players, she wins.
