BE CAREFUL, PINOCCHIO! ~ Children Games
There is a cap on the head of one of the players. He/she is Pinocchio. The leader tries to catch the player with the cap on his/her head. It's not easy, because the players pass the cap to one another while running. As the leader catches Pinocchio, they exchange their roles.

SPARROWS - FIDGETS ~ Children Games
Draw a circle on the ground (or on the floor). The size of the circle depends on the number of players. The more the number of players the more the size of the circle. All the players are accommodated along the circle line. One of the players is "a cat". He/she is in the center of the circle. All the rest players - "sparrows" - are beyond the circle. They stand at the circle line. At the leader's signal "the sparrows" begin to jump in and out the circle. "The cat" tries to catch the sparrows" while they are within the circle. "The sparrow" which is caught becomes "the cat", and "the cat" becomes "the sparrow". The game repeats itself.

ROBBERS ~ Children Games
For this game choose flat surroundings with plenty of secret places. The players are divided into "policemen" and "robbers". The main policeman is a sheriff. The robbers hide before the game begins. The policemen tie their arms with the white kerchiefs or think of the other distinctive marks. They start catching the robbers by their sheriff's instruction. The policeman who notices the robber must say a password. Only on saying the password the policeman may catch the robber. (About the password the players agree before the game begins. The password is necessary to distinguish between the robbers and the policemen in the dark.) If the policeman cannot catch the robber single-handed he/she may call for help of the other policemen. The caught robber is led to the sheriff. The sheriff thinks of "a punishment" for him/her. Usually "the punishment" consists in several joke strikes of the wisp. The caught and "the convicted" robber becomes the policeman. He/she receives a white band or other distinctive mark of the policemen. The robbers may also catch the policemen and turn them into the robbers. For this the robbers must sneak up to the policeman, strike him lightly and pronounce the password before the policeman pronounces it. If the policeman says the password before the robber catches him/her, the robber has to escape. The robbers pay much attention to the sheriff. They may sneak up to him and catch him. So the sheriff must have bodyguards.
The rules of the game:
1. The robbers and the policemen may make different tricks, but they mustn't confuse "the enemies" by changing the distinctive marks.
2. If the robbers hear the policeman saying the password, they mustn't catch him/her. But the policeman may say the password only when he/she really sees the robbers.
3. The game is over when one party is caught by the other or when the sheriff is caught.
4. The players mustn't fight painfully. It's the main rule.

FIGHT FOR THE BANNER ~ Children Games
A small hill or a heap of sand is "a fortress". The players are divided into 2 equal parties. One party occupies a fortress. The players of this party stand around the hill with their backs to each other. The leader of this party stands on the top of the hill with the banner in his hands. Not far from the fortress there drawn a line. It is "a trench" of the enemy party. At the signal of their leader, the attacking party begins the assault of the fortress. The assault consists in that the attacking party tries to pull off the defenders of the fortress over the trench line. The player who is pulled off the fortress and is over the trench line is considered to be a prisoner and cannot take part in the game anymore. The defenders of the fortress try in their turn to pull their enemies into their territory. The players of the attacking party who are pulled into the territory of the fortress are the prisoners. The game is over when one of the parties is so weakened that cannot continue fighting.

CRUCIANS AND PIKE ~ Children Games
At the opposite sides of the playground draw 2 lines (at the distance of 15-30 meters). There are "homes" of "crucians". All the players are "crucians". The leader is "a pike".

"The pike" catches the running "crucians". 4-5 caught "crucians" make a "net". They stand in a line in the center of the playground. "The crucians" run to their "home" at the opposite side of the playground through "the net" (under the stretched arms of the players who make "a net"). "The pike" stands behind "the net" and catches "the crucians". "The crucians" who are caught join "the net". When "the net" is large enough it makes "a basket" (a circle). "The crucians" run through "the basket" and "the pike", who stands behind "the basket" catches them. When there are not many free "crucians", the caught "crucians" make "a fish-trap" (they form up in 2 lines, as though making a corridor). "The pike" stands near the end of the corridor (2 steps away from it) and catches "the crucians". The game is over when all the crucians are caught. The rules of the game: All "the crucians" must go through "the net", "the basket", "the fish-trap" while running to the opposite side. The players who violate the rules are out of the game.

HUNTER AND WATCHMAN ~ Children Games
The players choose "a hunter" and "a watchman". "The watchman" stands in the middle of the playground in the circle with the diameter of 2 meters. All the rest players ("the animals") run within the playground. "The hunter" runs after them, trying to catch them. The caught "animals" are led to "the watchman" by "the hunter". The caught animals may be saved. To save "the animal" it's enough to strike it by the stretched arm. But the players who save "the animals" mustn't step within the circle. If the player who wants to save the caught "animal" is caught by "the hunter" or by "the watchman", he/she is considered to be caught and he/she must go into the circle. The game is stopped by the leader at his/her signal at any moment.

The player who hits with his/her ball one of the balls which lie on the floor takes all of them. Every time the players throw the new ball.

All the players are given the sheets of paper with the figure (1 or 2). The number of the sheets of paper with the figure 1 is equal to the number of sheets of paper with the figure 2. The players choose the leader - the main thief. He/she goes out of the room. The players who are in the room hide any object there. The leader's task is to find it. He/she tries to find the object with the help of the players-thieves (they have figure 1 on their sheets of paper). The players-thieves show place where the object is hidden by their eyes. The task of the detectives (they have figure 2 on their sheets of paper) is to watch the players and find the thieves among them. The game is over when the hidden object is found or when all the thieves are "caught" by the detectives.
