Simon says

Age range:

Young kids, Kids

Birthday party, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Halloween, Easter

Indoor, Outdoor

You will need:
Some kids, a supervising adult

How to play:
Explain to the kids that you will tell them to do something, if you say "Simon says [instruction]" then they have to do it, but if you just say "[instruction]" then they mustn’t do it.
Start giving instructions "Simon says: Put your hands on your heads", let them do it, "Simon says: hold your nose", let them do it, "Simon says: touch your knees", let them do it...
Occasionally give an instruction without Simon says "Jump up and down". Anyone who does it is out.
How you do this should be based on the ages of the children, small children are more easily tricked so should be given other clues, such as saying the instruction much slower or in a different tone if it’s not a "Simon says". Don’t give impossible commands.

The last person in is the winner.
