Kids Activities

The Dundee Township Park District offers Kids Games & Activities, each year on the Tennis Courts at Grafelman Park, near the corner of Washington and Fourth Streets in West Dundee. Everyone goes home with prizes!

On the tennis courts, there will be a variety of games such as bean bag toss, spinning wheels and much more. Penny in a Haystack takes place east of the tennis courts. Kids are split into age groups to search the haystack for trinkets, candy, gift certificates, or even coins! Old Fashioned Games and Races, which will set up west of the tennis courts, features such classics as potato sack race, three-legged race, and egg on a spoon race.

In addition, Coloniel Cafe is sponsoring the 2nd annual Heritage Fest Ice Cream Eating Contest on Sunday in Grafelman Park, next to the Gazebo.

Ice Cream Contest heats are run by age group: 6 & younger, 7-11, 12-17 and 18+. Each contestant has 2 minutes to eat as much ice cream as possible. The 1st place winner, who eats the most ice cream, wins a "Kitchen Sink" from Coloniel Cafe. 2nd place wins a Turtle Sundae, 3rd place wins a Hot Fudge Sundae and all other contestants receive a One Scoop Sundae for participating.
