Welcome back as we continue our "back to the basics" party game blog series.  In effort to counterbalance the over-the-top birthday parties that continue to get more elaborate with each passing year, we are highlighting some simple kid pleasing games that can still be a hit at any birthday celebration!  Today we're highlighting something for the little ones, Duck Duck Goose.

I remember so well playing this growing up, waiting patiently for the tap on the head calling me a goose!  I just loved the frantic chase that ensued around the ring of other kids as I attempted to tag the "it" person before they sat safely down in my vacated spot.  I also remember the times that a not so coordinated kid would be "it" time and time again because they would always get caught before making it safely around the entire circle.  


Well, you can see, that this simple game builds fun memories and it's easily played indoors during the cooler months.  If it's summer time, you can add a twist to the game and call it Duck Duck Splash.  In this version, the "it" person splashes the "goose" with a cup of water or they squeeze a water soaked sponge over their head.  It's a great way to cool down during the hot summer months and the kids love it!
