Re:treat has a well-stocked supply of outdoor games just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. You’ll find favourites such as cricket and rounders as well as the unusual Molkky; an addictive Finnish game for all the family using wooden skittles. There’s also an array of indoor games in the games chest ranging from classics such as cranium, dominoes and card games through to ‘dobble’; a modern take on ‘snap’ for all ages.
For inspiration, there are a range of books with suggestions for outdoor and indoor games. These include ‘The Stick Book’ with lots of fun and games using the humble stick through to ‘The Wild Weather book’ for fun and games even if it’s raining.
There are plenty of places to choose from to set up your games and have fun together. For outdoor games ‘the old orchard’ is a grassed area that is surrounded on the perimeter by mature trees. At the back of the old orchard, there’s a spinney area that’s perfect for den making. Be aware though that it’s shared with the rabbits and visiting badgers too so do keep an eye out for rabbit holes.
