Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja (6th Grade Ninja, book 1) by Marcus Emerson
Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast. Good, but not great, tie-in with the film. Skylanders Trap Team. Transform baddies with terrific twist on toy-driven series.

The first to giggle or if you prefer, the last is the next Michelangelo. Mother says is a bit like Mother May I. However, instead of each player asking permission to move. There are so many ways kids can race from one side of the yard to the other: one legged, three legged, backwards, crab walk, fastest, slowest, middlest?.
Let your kids take turns calling out the race style. If you are planning for a party, you can purchase kits like the one pictured below complete with potato sacks, leg bands and awards. In this game, kids can only move when the person who is IT has their back turned. If IT is looking, you have to freeze. If IT catches you moving, you have to go back to the start.

Lie on the lawn and watch the birds and squirrels above. The squirrels in my backyard have a regular bedtime, and if we lie on the porch at that time, we can watch each of them come back to their nest and curl in. We found a video we liked at the library with Backyard Baseball Drills.
Drills are a good way to improve sports skills when your child is alone.

Take an afternoon to teach your kids these outdoor games and maybe it will stick. This game was recommended by my 7-year-old son as Snake Bite and my year-old daughter as Helicopter. One person stands in the center and spins the jump rope around on the ground. The players have to jump the rope as it comes around. If the rope hits you, you are out. The last person standing is the next helicopter or snake.
