What To Do

The players make a circle standing up.

One player is chosen to be ‘Simon’ and that person stands in the centre of the circle.

Simon then gives actions for the other players to follow. A few examples follow: ‘Simon says touch your toes.’

‘Simon says jump ten times on one foot.’ ‘Simon says wave your arms.’

Everyone must follow the instruction.

If Simon says, ‘Touch your ears,’ and omits to say the word ‘Simon says’ before giving an instruction, the players must not do the action. If they do then they are out of the game and have to sit down.

The last person who is standing can then be Simon!


VARIATIONS: You can vary the actions according to the age group of players you are playing with.
