Name Chase

This is a particularly good game if you have a few new members joining a group. Based on the old favourite Duck, Duck, Goose, it helps everyone learn the children's names. Play it with kids aged 4 and over.

Name Chase

This children sit around in a circle, facing each other. One child is chosen to be "it" first.

That child who is "it" stands up and walks around the outside of the circle tapping each child on the head and saying their name, with prompting if necessary. At some point he when he taps a child on the head he will say the name of the group instead (the class name, Scout, Brownie, Daisy etc) The chosen child must now jump up and chase the first child around the circle, trying to tag "it" before he can sit down in their place. If he succeeds, "it" has another go. If he fails, he takes over as "it".

This game is similar to Chase The Rabbit and Duck, Duck, Goose
