Monkey See, Monkey Do

This is a good game for a group. I think older children would get a kick out of this one!!

1. Have the children sit in a circle.

2. Choose one child to leave the room.

3. Choose another child to be the “head” monkey. The head monkey will lead the group in funny monkey moves, such as patting their heads, rubbing their tummies, etc.  The trick is to do this as secretly as possible. Try to encourage the other children not to look at the head monkey too much!

4. Have the child who left the room return and stand in the middle of the circle. The head monkey begins making monkey moves while the remaining children follow–all inconspiculously, of course! The child in the center of the circle now needs to figure out who the head monkey is.

5. When the head monkey is caught, begin again with new children.
