An effective strategy was choosing games that the kids found interesting and challenging yet at the same time allowed them to run around and enjoy themselves. The younger the kids were the more challenging it was to keep their attention, so using cues and animals as examples, was a great way to regain their attention. Also games that were challenging and involved lots of movement were fun for the older kids because they wanted to continue moving and used their motor skills at a higher more challenging level.
I learned if things are not going well with a certain game to just move on and try something new, to keep the kids constantly moving and involved.
