Trail Games: Activities to Keep Kids Moving and Motivated While Hiking - AMC Articles

Trail games, such as roving hide-and-seek, make use of nooks and crannies along the trail and keep kids motivated while hiking.

Hiking Games & Activities

The following “Hip Pocket Activities,” developed by Delia Clark and Pat Straughan for Shelburne Farms, can be done any time, any place, and in any order. Choose a few favorites and keep the simple low-cost supplies ready in your pack for an opportune moment. Most of the activities will take about 5 to 10minutes, but a few require extra time, as noted.

These activities are a wonderful way to begin a hike, to keep a group together, to spice up a destination, or to occupy part of the group while the other part catches up or engages in a different activity. Adults will enjoy them as much as children!
