Yogi is a brilliant card game that will have you and your friends contorting your body in hilarious ways.
On each turn, the card tells you to strike a pose. Keep taking cards and add more poses at the same time - Card on left ear, Cover one eye, Keep right elbow high, Finger on nose. You could end up drawing cards with your mouth, elbow or even your toes. When you're so twisted up that you can't take a card or hold all your poses, you're out. Like Twister without the mat, but with the laughs!

Eight year olds like more challenging stuff and adventures. Try the Walkie Talkies or the Slingball Challenge for outside. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. Or anything they can throw or shoot at someone else.
