Play Toilet Paper Soccer
Clearly a game invented by kids. Take a roll of toilet paper, preferably with the store wrapper still on it. Divide into two teams, each with a wall as a goal, and play soccer using the toilet paper as a ball. The toilet paper will not break lamps or china while soaring through the air. More appealingly, at some point the store wrapper will rip, the paper will begin to unroll and the so-called ball will become a long, crazy paper comet that shoots though the house with every kick, creating the kind of needless mess and mayhem that every child adores.
