Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A version of 'Captain's Coming' to introduce all the animals on the Chinese zodiac




Leader explains that when they call out a calendar animal's name the children must do a mime associated with that animal.

rat - pretend to clean your whiskers
ox - lumber around the room very slowly
tiger - growl
rabbit - hop
dragon - pretend to fly
snake - slither on the ground
horse - run around the room
goat - stroke your beard
monkey make a monkey mime
rooster - crow 'cock a doodle doo'
dog - chase your tail
pig - pretend to eat messily

Go over actions a couple of times. The call out animals at random. (Include plenty of horses, rabbits and dogs if you want to use up some energy !)
