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!
Help the kids learn the names of the countries and capital cities of North America, as well as the country flags, with this collection of dominoes games. Play with 2 or 3 players by dealing out the cards, or just play solo and see if you can match them all up!
These cards can be used 2 ways: as matching cards (cut all the cards out separately and match the correct pairs together) or as double-sided flash cards (fold in half along the vertical dotted line and glue back to back).
We have 4 variations of these dominoes cards featuring South American countries, capital cities and flags in various combinations - great for fun learning! Cut out the dominoes along horizontal lines (leaving the left and right side joined together).
