Name Chase

change the game of Duck, Duck, Goose to one where the Beavers have to name each other




This children sit around in a circle, facing each other. One child is chosen to be "it" first.

That child who is "it" stands up and walks around the outside of the circle tapping each child on the head and saying their name, with prompting if necessary. At some point he when he taps a child on the head he will say the name of the group instead (St Georges etc) The chosen child must now jump up and chase the first child around the circle, trying to tag "it" before he can sit down in their place. If he succeeds, "it" has another go. If he fails, he takes over as "it". To make the game simpler if you have quite a few children you can just make the chaser the person that is "it" after they have chased.
