Capture The Flag has always been a huge favourite with my kids, who learned it at a school summer camp and have played on every available occasion since. It is a great game for large, mixed age groups and long summer afternoons!
We have some very different flag games for you here. The first, Capture the Flag, is a family favourite and a great idea for an outdoor party. Put two teams of children together and, after they've eaten and need a quiet activity, get them to design their own flags. Then send them outside to play this lovely outdoor game.
Alternatively, try our ice-breaking flag game or print out our country "top trumps" style trading cards!
Can you identify the flags of all 53 countries of the Commonwealth? Here's a flag matching game that will help you find out! Either cut out each "card" individually and then match flag to country name, or make flash cards.
This is a useful "quiet" ice-breaking activity for groups of older children. The finished flags also make a fabulous early display for the classroom, before the term's work goes up on the walls!
