What time is it Mr Wolf?

  • Choose one person to be Mr Wolf, who has to stand facing a wall.
  • All other players stand in a row behind Mr.Wolf.
  • Players all shout “What time is it Mr Wolf?”
  • Mr Wolf shouts out a time and players take that amount of steps towards Mr Wolf e.g. for 6 o’clock take 6 steps forward.
  • When Mr Wolf is ready they can shout “Dinner time” instead. When this happens, Mr Wolf turns around and has to chase the players. The players have to try touch the wall where Mr Wolf was standing. The first person to touch the wall is Mr Wolf next time.

Farmer, Farmer

  • Choose one player to be the farmer.
  • The other players stand in a line away from the Farmer. They have to ask:
  • “Farmer, Farmer, may we cross your Golden River, without getting wet or dirty?”
  • The farmer replies with something like:
  • “Only if you have the colour red”
  • All players wearing something red can take one step forward. This continues with players asking the same question and the Farmer giving different answers.
  • The winner is the first person to reach the Farmer at the other side. They then become the Farmer.

Red Letter

  • One person is chosen to be the leader.
  • The other players stand in a line away from the leader.
  • The leader calls out, for example, “Red Letter B”.
  • Each player with the letter B in their name takes a step forward.
  • The leader continues calling out different letters.
  • The winner is the first person to reach the Leader. They then become the new leader.

See, see my playmate
Come out and play with me
My Father’s got the flu
Chickenpox and measles too
Slide down the drainpipe
Onto the cellar floor
Where we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more
