To play "Two Truths and a Lie," each child must share three facts about himself. Two should be real facts, while the other one should be false. After a child lists all three facts, the others try to guess which facts are true and which are lies. One player might say he has a pet dog, loves to go swimming and wants to be a fire fighter, when in fact he has a cat or is scared of swimming.

To play "Who's Like Me?" gather the children in an open area. Call out categories, and challenge the children to form themselves into appropriate groups. For instance, call out "birthday months." The players must talk to each other to find out who was born in each month and sort themselves into groups based on their answers. Then call out a new category, such as "number of siblings." The players should then sort themselves into groups of only children, kids who have one sibling, those who have two siblings, and so forth.
