Hens Foxes Snakes
Hens Foxes Snakes is a great outdoor game to organise at parties.
You need a large playing field (or garden) with enough room for all three teams to run about at the same time. Firstly, divide the children into three teams: hens, foxes and snakes. Each team has their own camp. The aim of the game is for the foxes to catch the hens, the hens to catch the snakes and the snakes to catch the foxes. The players attach a scarf the colour of their team to their trousers or skirt. It is this scarf that the opponents have to catch. When the scarf of a player is caught, this player is taken prisoner and is placed in the camp. They can then only be freed by someone from their own team touching them on the hand. The team which catches all their opponents wins the game.
