This is a game for adults and children to play together, a traditional favourite that will never go out of fashion. First, choose one player (probably the parent of the first round) to be Simon. The other players will gather in a circle or in a line in front of Simon as he will start the action by calling out the words “Simon says”: “Simon says …… touch your hair.”
The other players must then imitate Simon’s actions by touching their hair. If Simon calls out an action without saying the words “Simon says”, the children cannot do the action. If a child touches his or her toes without Simon saying ……, he or she is out of the game. There are many ways Simon can induce a player to perform an action when Simon does not say it: for example, Simon can perform an action without giving the command, or he can perform an action that does not match the command.
The game is simple, but fun! The last player left in the game wins and becomes the next Simon.
Parents playing the game with their children will make their relationship closer and more harmonious. More fun!
