19 Sep Simon Says…
If there’s any game that’s a classic, it’s definitely this one ! Simon says… it’s still just as popular. Why go without it ? Make it last at least 10 minutes !
— Now let’s play «Simon says» !
— Ooooohhhh !
— Remember, you should only obey me if I first say the words «Simon says». For instance : «Simon says, touch your nose» is ok but if I say «jump» without «Simon says» Don’t do it ! If one of you follow an order that doesn’t begin with «Simon says», you’re out of the game. The last person left is the winner and becomes the next «Simon». Understood ?
— Yes !
— I’ll start : «Simon says, everybody stand up !»
You can also rename the game and replace «Simon» by the name of the birthday boy or girl.
Here are a few order suggestions : jump, hop on one foot, run, run on the spot, touch your feet, thighs, shoulders, head; spin round, lift your arms, your legs; mimic a hen, a monkey, a lion; sing «Polly put the kettle on», count very quickly up to 5 and so on…
