Games for 8 years
Give each child two small bowls and a straw. Fill one of the bowls with small sweets like skittles or M&M’s, and leave the other one empty. On the count of three, children must suck the lollies onto the end of their straw, and transfer them to the other bowl.
You can either put a time limit on the game, whereby the children get to keep all the lollies they have transferred when the timer stops, or you could have a race to see who empties their bowl the fastest. If you are planning the race version, make sure everybody has the same amount of lollies in their bowl to begin with!
