Games[edit | edit source]

1-2-3-Queen (Red Light / Green Light)

One is chosen as the Queen/King/ This child stands with his back against the wall/end of camp. The other children are lined up against the opposite wall/side of camp. The king/queen turns to face the wall and shouts "David." The other players move quickly towards the King/Queen but beware, as soon as the he/she turns around and shouts "Saul", they must stop and remain still. If they are not completely still, the queen/king sends them back to the starting point. The first child to reach the queen/king becomes the next royalty.


Designate one child to be "it" and have him try to "tag" the others. When he does, children become statues. Other players may rescue the players standing as statues by passing under their arms.
