Some fun ice skating games for kids include freeze skate, skate chain, ice potato, gliders and ice words. These games are great for parties or occasions where there are a large number of children gathered at once.
Many ice skating games for children are adapted from other playground games, so they are easy for kids to learn and appropriate for all skill levels. For example, ice potato, a variation of the popular game hot potato, calls for children to toss a foam ball from person to person while they skate. The person caught with the ball when the music stops is eliminated. Ice words, on the other hand, is a variation of charades where a child chooses a random word to spell out on the ice by skating. The first player to correctly guess the word is the next to skate.
