Sly fox is a great game to play when your child has friends over. The rules are simple. One child is designated as the fox and has to stand away from the other players and turn his back to them. Then, the fox counts to 10 (as fast as they like) and the other players have to try to reach him quietly. The point of the game is that when the fox turns around, all the other players must freeze. If they fall over or move, they have to go back to the starting line. The person who reaches the fox before he turns around becomes the new fox.
