A quick simple memory game that requires no preparation or equipment, perfect for all sorts of occasions when you need to keep the kids occupied - waiting rooms, train journeys etc - and also as a "getting to know you" game.
Sit the group in a circle (adults and children). Ask everyone to think of something that they like to do. Then pick someone to start by telling the group for example I like to swim. The person to their right will then tell the group what the first person liked and adding what they like to do, for example Fred likes to swim, I like to walk.
This continues right around the circle until the last person has to say what everyone likes to do.
Other members of the group can prompt by miming the activity if anyone falls into difficulty.
Of course this game can be played by older children, who may turn it into a much more humorous game by making up silly sentences.
