Red/Green Light. This is fun and action paced. This could be done outdoor. Before the game starts, prepare two lengths of rope about 25 feet apart. These ropes serve as the start and finish lines. Now, have the kids stand up at the starting line while the birthday celebrant stands at the finishing line. The birthday celebrant’s role is to act like the Police Officer and has to turn back on the participants and shouts, “Green light!”. After doing that, he or she turns around and counts from one to five. While he or she is counting, the participants then run as fast as they could to reach the finish line. If the Police Officer finishes his or her count, the participants stop running. If anyone is caught moving, he or she goes back from the starting line. This goes on and on until one person finally reaches the finish line and wins.
