From Summer Activities for Children, Part 4:
Help your child make up a new game. It can be a physical game, like a ball game or running/jumping game. Or, it can be a card or board game. If starting from scratch to come up with a new idea for a game is too difficult, try making changes in a game your child already knows. How else could Chutes and Ladders be played? Or baseball? Let him make up whatever rules he wants as long as they are not unsafe or hurtful to other players and are set BEFORE the game is played (not to be changed during the game). Be sure to play the game after it is created. Discuss how well your child liked the game and whether it could be even better with some additional changes in it.
