Joey's Birthday run-around game

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A running around game, based on Australian animals.




Have the Beavers sit in a circle on the floor. Go round the circle, allocating names of characters to the Beavers. Read out the story - as each character's name is read out, the Beavers with that name have to run round the outside of the circle and back to their place. All characters are mentioned several times so everyone gets chance to run around more than once. At the end, when it says "all the Australian animals", everyone runs around.

If you're running an Australian themed evening, you can have a discussion about Australian animals before running this game.
