1st Orleans Pathfinders
People to People
Category: Outdoor, or large space
Age: 5 - 12 years
Number of participants: A good bunch.
Source: Roxanne taught me this one at the Shepherd King Children's Care Center in Calgary.
Everyone gets into pairs, except for one leader. The leader yells out, "Toe to toe", "knee to elbow", "head to knee" etc. Partners do touch these body parts together until the leader yells out "People to people." Then everyone changes partners and the leader tries to find a partner. The person who is without a partner, becomes the leader. (In the event of an even number of children, an adult can be the first leader and participate in the game thereafter!)
This is sort of a tag variation.
