Active game, where 'it' chooses different colours and other players can pass only if they are wearing hat colour
Added by the GGNZ Programme Team




One player is the farmer and stands at one end of the playing area. Other players stand at the other end of the playing area facing the farmer. The lined-up players call "Farmer, farmer, may we cross your golden river?" and choosing a colour the farmer replies, "You may cross if you are wearing (colour)" The players who have this colour on can cross, but the others have to dash across without being caught by the farmer. If a player is caught, they help the farmer catch the other players. Repeat several times, with different colours
