When I am playing a game with my Kindergartne, games that involves height, weight, strength, or knowledge, my poor kid is at a major disadvantage when she plays with me. Most of the time I try to bring myself down to her level as best I can. but I still always end up winning when I play with small kids. So how can I adapt the following activities to where the kid and adult are on a 100% even level (without grown-ups faking). basketball Relay race football Tag monkey in the middle Competitive activity as far as The physical activities, I’m talking about backyard things. In every single activity I do with an elementary school age child, I have an advantage, I am bigger, stronger, faster, heavier, and smarter then A kindergartners. I have tried to adapt these activities, but I just can’t seem to find very many things that are successful. For example, in basketball/football, I am stronger than the kids. I can throw the ball much further. I also tower over them. I can easily keep the ball from them. another example is when we have little relay races With the kiddos, my legs are the size of their entire body, I can easily win the race without even trying, partly because my legs are longer, but I can also run much faster. In monkey in the middle, I Control the entire game, I am taller than the kids, even when I’m on my knees, my arms are significantly longer and in competitive activities, they just don’t have a chance, I am much faster than the kids, I’m also much smarter, and depending on what the competitive activity is, I have a major height, weight, or strength advantage. I really do try and dumb everything down so that the little kids can at least have somewhat of a chance, but I just find myself winning even when I’m trying to even the playing field. Do y’all have any advice so we can all go out and have some fun?
