What is useful for such games in the fresh air? They have a positive effect on health, motor activity, develop the horizon, give new sensations, increase the level of discipline and moral qualities. In addition, your temper is affected by tempering by nature.
And now we'll figure out how to organize your own holiday in nature. First, we will choose a combination of competitions and sports games. Secondly, you can design everything as a fascinating presentation.
Requirements for the territory
Often, large spaces are needed. Be careful, take care of safety.
If you like the game, passing along a certain route, well study this route.
Can you swim? You can play on the water, but remember that special security rules are needed here.
Pay attention to the age structure of the participantsAnd their athletic training. Take into account the peculiarities of the terrain, the season, weather conditions and other similar factors. In advance, discuss with the participants the rules of a specific game. Organize the younger players. Agree on any special signals that indicate the beginning of the game.
It is very interesting to modify, refine, complicate the game.
Important: Do not forget about comic awards and charters.
Moving games can be used both at departure on a nature with native and friends, and at corporate action.
Guests of the holiday, who do not know each other, can get acquainted during the game.

Method of conducting
So, you have chosen the right games. Take care of their preparation. Equip and decorate the chosen place. Do not forget about the inventory. For the route game, you will need a map. If you want to make an interesting presentation, distribute roles and replicas in advance, prepare costumes.
All is ready? Has the long-awaited day come? Then put your ideas into practice.
To start the games put the players in the starting position. If it is a circle, also stand in it. If it's a rank, settle down on the flank. If the participants get into the column, stand on the side.
Important: Players should not stand against the light. You also turn to the light or sideways.
Explain the rules as follows:
Announce the name of the game.
Explain what the players should do and where to be.
Tell the rules.
Mark the target.
Repeat the basic rules.
Now it's worth a trial game without rewards.
Choose the guide (if required by the rules). This mission can be assigned by the organizer, but you can give it to one of the players. The choice is made by counting or by lot.
Divide your wards into teams. You can divide all by yourself, or the division takes place according to the algorithm "first-second" (the number of digits depends on the required number of commands).
Appointment of judges if the games are complex and many people participate in them. The judges will monitor the order and keep score.
The choice of captains.
Teams come up with names and mottoes.
Let's try to characterize and prepare a specific game. Let it be all known "Rucheyok".
The number of participants is more than 6, or rather, as many as you like.
Important: The number of participants is odd.
Contact of participants is direct contact.
Items are not required.
The game is not team, without a lead.
Now let's formulate an explanation for the players.
This game is called "Rucheyok".
You must pair up in the column. There will be an extra person. He will lead someone through the tunnel.
Each pair holds hands by lifting them up. Here's the tunnel. The rest enters into it and chooses a pair. The new pair is at the end of the column. The second, who has not been married, is also looking for a partner.
The goal of this game is the continuous movement of the brook.
I repeat the rules. Create a column-tunnel. The one who is left alone takes the partner from the other. So it is repeated many times.
So, dear readers, we learned how to organize games for a picnic. Now the choice is yours. Create the right program for you and go ahead. Have a good and cheerful picnic!
