Active Games build coordination and strength in 8-year-olds
Battle TV time and electronic fixations with outdoor games for kids that build coordination and stamina while they keep kids entertained for hours. Kids belong outdoors and MindWare's active games for kids will give them a reason to get up and go. Set up a Slackline Double-line Set and get the whole family started on a new sport. Swingball and the best Magnetic Dartboard anywhere will get eight-year-olds working on hand-eye coordination without so much as a thought. While the adorable Get Up and Go: Puppy Pursuit will provide hours of fun.
Looking for activities the whole family will enjoy? Try out an international sport that builds core strength and enhances balance skills at the same time. This tough, 50-foot Slackline Double-line set anchors quickly to trees or pillars and holds up to 800 pounds. Use the integrated tightening ratchet to keep the line taut for stability or loosen it for some bounce. The upper "teaching" guideline helps everyone get the hang of it.
Challenge the kids to a game of darts! But this well-designed Magnetic Dartboard features super-strong magnets that make it a safe game for them on their own too. Each perfectly-balanced dart connects to the lightweight board with a rare-earth magnet when thrown. These darts won't hurt your walls or your 8-year-olds! This active game for kids improves coordination and teaches sportsmanship.
For a classic playground experience get your kids playing Swingball. Two players hit the ball with a paddle clockwise and counter-clockwise until someone moves the tether to the top or bottom and wins. This outdoor game for kids builds hand-eye coordination while providing hours of fun.
And speaking of classics... Hockey Frenzy provides the fast pace and non-stop action you remember from air hockey without the huge table and no electricity is required. This revolutionary system converts any floor surface into a play area - even carpet.
For the littlest players Get Up and Go Games: Puppy Pursuit will have them reading clues on their paw print cards and zooming from place-to-place to locate the missing puppies. Active games for kids are an important part of childhood - so start them off right with games from MindWare.
