Circle run

Materials Needed

  • one dress ring
  • string to go around a large circle of children

How to Play the Game

Thread a ring on a long line of string with children standing in a large circle. The birthday child should stand in the middle of the circle and close their eyes. She must count to 20, while she does so, the rest of the children thread the ring around until the birthday girl/boy counts to 20. She can then guess who has the ring. If she guesses correctly she gets to have another go in the middle. If she doesn't, she needs to swap with the person who held ring without getting caught.
