Game for a group while visiting

Next time you have a large group visit and need some outside games to occupy some time......Split all the people up into two groups and give each group a digital camera ( those little inexpensive ones are good for having around!). Send them off all on foot with a list of things to take pictures of: a hummingbird, a white cat, a brown and black dog, a fire hydrant, a dogwood tree, a squirrel, a yellow car; just things that would be in your area. For bonus points they could bring back other things like a napkin from the local ice cream shop, or a cup form a local restaurant, etc. Give them a time limit ( a couple of hours usually works) and the team that returns with the most items and objects gets a prize.

When I take the kids out to eat I always ask them to find me different shapes around the restaurant. The tables are rectangles, the dessert menu is usually set up to look like a triangle, the tops of the cups/glasses are circles. We also look for colors. Good learning without them knowing they are learning.
