This is a great game when kids are starting to get a bit restless.
We have played it when we aren’t able to stop but need to get them moving.
Time needed for one round: 1 minute.
How to Play ‘Simon Says’
The lead player, ‘Simon’, will call out commands (eg ‘Simon Says wave your hands’)and the other players have to follow.
- The Rules
If the lead player starts by saying ‘Simon Says….’ then all the players must FOLLOW the command.
If, however, the lead player simply states a command, WITHOUT saying ‘Simon Says..’ all the players must IGNORE the command.
- Example Game
Lead Player says – ‘Simon Says Wave your Hands’.
All players must wave hands
Lead Player says – ‘Simon Says Cover your Eyes’.
All players must cover their eyes
Lead Player says – ‘Stamp your Feet’.
Any players that stamp their feet lose a life! Simon didn’t say stamp your feet!
