Fun game for hiking kids: Guess that Song

"That's 'Over the River and Through the Woods.'"
Generally, exploring and discovery is enough for kids, but sometimes even they can grow bored with that and become restless. Remember that they naturally have shorter attention spans than adults.

Fortunately, there are lots of tried and true activities you can do on the trail that’ll keep kids from getting bored. Among them is Guess that Song.

Have a child hum a tune. The player who correctly guesses the tune gets to hum next while the other children guess. You must be careful to hum songs that every child in the group would be familiar with.

Materials: None

Ages: 5 and up
