What are some active games your kids enjoy? Outside or indoors. Preferably with more than two people. Ages 5-13 so they all can have fun to some extent.

I can think of tag, freefall, 500, four corners, belts.

Any other ideas?

Bombs and excuses is like tag except everyone gets a few times outs. Used to play this as a kid.

Whoever is it turns around and closes their eyes.

Everyone lines up and one by one taps them and the person who is it will say how many bombs or excuses they get. For example "2 bombs and 3 excuses" then when the person who is it gets near them they can use one of their bombs or excuses. For excuses they actually have to make up an excuse. For example "my mother is calling me". For bombs they just say bomb. They sit down while saying it and as soon as the person who is it moves on they get up and start running again.

Galochim is generally played by boys but girls can play too.
Not sure 100 percent. Maybe someone here can explain.
