Mother May I? (Mother is at one end of the room, children opposite from her. Each child ask Mother may I, take 3 giant steps(or umbrella spins etc etc) ? MOther either says, yes you may or no you may not and give alternate instruction) The point is to reach Mother and take over However because someMothers are such cheaters they stay giving the worst instruction (1 baby step, 3 steps back)
Red light, Green Light (same set up as above, but it is a faster game) The person at the stop says alternates between red light and green light indicating if the others should move or stop But there back is turned to the other at the green light command but when it is red light they turn around anyone they see moving (sometimes even a little quiver) is taken out of the game. Aim: reach the top and take over as the "caller"
