Silly Sausage (fun classroom games 1)
This is a great game to play with children from 4 to 8 years of age. One child begins the game by standing up infront of the class. The rest of the class has to ask the child a range of silly questions, such as..."What is your girlfriend's name?" The child must answer every question with the phrase..."Sausage". The aim of the game is to get the child to break into a laugh or smile. If they do, then the child who asked the question swaps over and they take the original child's position. This is a great game to play with children as it gets them on their toes and they laugh a lot.
Toot Toot (fun classroom games 2)
Have the class arranged in a large circle. One child should leave the room. Once they have gone, the teacher or adult arranges it so that two children in the circle become the toot toot sounds. The children should all be holding hands and one person will begin the game by gently squeezing the hand of their neighbor. That neighbor then squeezes the hand of the next person and so on. When the squeeze gets around to the children who say 'toot toot' they must say it aloud. The child who left the group should now be in the middle of the cirlce. That child must now try and guess who the toot toot people are. If they do guess correctly then they name the children aloud. They then swap with one of the toot toot children. Keep playing until about 6 children have had a turn. This is a great cooperative and fun game.
Sneak Up on Granny (fun classroom games 3)
The aim is for children to tag Granny who is standing with her back to them. One child acts as Granny should stand at the front with their back to the rest of the class who should be lined up at the back of the room. Once Granny turns her or his back, the rest of the class should try and sneak up and should freeze when Granny turns around. If Granny turns around and finds someone moving their arms, lets, or body they name the moving children and they should move back into the beginning line. The person who reaches granny without getting caught by her is the winner.
Whispers (fun classroom games 4)
All children should sit in a circle. Whisper in the ear of a child a funny and reasonably simple sentence. They must whisper the same sentence in the ear of the next person without embellishing or changing the original message. Once you get to the end, ask them what the sentence is. Congratulate them if they kept the same saying, or if they got somewhere near. It's always funny to see how the original sentence has changed.
One Word at a Time (fun classroom games 5)
In pairs, each person must add to a story by giving one word at a time only. For instance the theme could be crocodiles in Iceland.

A great game to play in a hall or even outside. One child is blindfolded and stands in the middle of the room. On the word 'go' the blindfolded kid walks around and tries to tag a non blind person.
