Games (Tuesday June 2nd)
Hi everyone. We have included some games for your activity today. These games are some you may already play. While others may be more familiar to your parents. But, hopefully everyone can get involved and enjoy them together! To access the instructions just click into the pictures attached. Feel free to share some pictures or videos of yourself enjoying these games. For the clapping games, we will include the link below.
MOTHER, MAY I
One person is ‘on’ and all the rest line up.One
person in the group asks the person in the front,
“Mother, may I take steps forward?” The person
at the front then says, “Yes, you may.” or “No,
you may not.” You can vary your requests by
including options such as taking baby steps,
spinning steps, leaps or whatever strikes your
fancy. Again, the first person to tag the person in
the front wins and is the next person in the
front. Number of Players: A small group.
This game can be played anywhere, even in a
car or other small space. One person is Simon
and starts by saying, “Simon says, ‘[insert action
here]’. ” Everyone must then do the action.
However, if Simon makes an action request
without saying, “Simon says” to begin the
request, anyone who does that action is out. The
last person still playing in the end will be Simon
for the next round. Number of Players: A small
This game is another variation on tag. The
person who is “it” wears a blindfold and tries to
tag the other players. Be sure to play this in an
area safe from obstructions and other
hazards. Number of Players: A small
group. Equipment: A blindfold.
The first hand-clap game most people have
played is Pat-a-Cake with their parents. Songs
and patterns get much more complicated from
there. Usually there are two people involved,
doing a series of clap patterns on their own and
each other’s hands while singing or chanting a
rhythmic song. There are many rhymes listed
online, but if you can learn from someone else or
see it in a video, that is best.
10 classic hand-clapping games to teach your kid
Welly Boot Toss

The Tester will then place the Marker where the
Welly boot first made contact with the ground.
The winner is whoever threw the boot the
