Games for 5 years Guess the leader - for 5 year olds
This is a fun game that works really well if played to music!
One child has to go outside the room (and is the detective) while the remaining children choose a leader.
The children then all sit / stand haphazardly in the room. The music starts playing.
The leader has to choose a movement / dance move that everybody copies.
The children can only change the dance move / action when the leader does and they have to copy him / her exactly!
The aim of the gameis for the detective to wor out which child is the leader!
The leader should only change movements when the detective has his / her back to them.
To make it a bit easier, if the detective knows that someone is not the leader he/she should be able to tap them on the shoulder so they can sit down.
There should be a time limit / understanding that the leader has to change movements fairley regularly or it is not fair on the detective!
