Game: Come Back Here!

This is a game I often play with my younger children at the park when they are enjoying the swings.  They beg for it and end up in fits of laughter.   

Come Back Here!

I did this series of cards that explains the game a while ago and my early readers enjoy reading it when we’re not at the playground.

Illustrated (poorly but lovingly) by me.

Do you have any swing games you play with your kids?

    Yes! My toddler loves it when I say ‘Don’t kick me!’ and then stand in front of the swing enough to let his legs bump into me – then I do a very exaggerated fall backwards saying ‘owwwww!’ – he thinks it is the funniest thing ever.

      Ha! Yes, I’ve done that too: stand there and then exaggerate being projected backwards as they come close. Love it.
