Play a hide and seek or capture the flag type game. Outfit the kids with camoflauge binoculars that you make for them before the party or that you make with them at the party (depending on whether you want to do a craft -- it is a great and easy craft to do!)

They're just your standard toilet paper roll binoculars (tape two tp rolls together), but they are covered with this template http://www.dltk-kids.com/members/images/cbinocular.gif

We rolled up a small piece of black construction paper and taped it in between as the "focus knob". We punched holes on either side and threaded wool through -- for safety, punch the holes very close to the edge of the roll, that way if the children get tangled, the tp roll will rip.

Here's a picture of daddy and Kaitlyn "spying" on the neighbour's cat with their binoculars after singing "We're Going on a Lion Hunt" *grin* http://www.dltk-kids.com/members/images/mbinoc3.jpg
