Let Us Begin the Party

Aug 17, 2007
the party gangs to move freely. It is always fun to have a large number of games so as to make Fun as King. Some of the popularly played games are given below.

Next was a Fish Game commonly played in Denmark. Folding chairs were placed in pairs around the room. And the children grouped themselves into pairs. One couple became IT and was named Whales. The other couples seated themselves in these chairs. Each couple, other than the Whales, secretly selected the name of a fish. The whales wandered about the room calling out from time to time the name of some fish.

Each fish called left his chair and marched after the whales. If the whales called out, The Ocean is calm, everyone left his chair and followed the whales. When the whales called out, The Ocean is stormy, all the couples raced to get chairs. The left-over couple became whales. This Danish fish game proved to be popular with our young Americans.

Next we enjoyed a Mexican game called Bread and Cheese. The Buyer stood in the center of the ring of children and asked Tommy, Where do they sell bread and cheese? Tommy pointing to Sally standing at the far side of the ring, said, There it is very cheap. The Buyer then repeated his question of Sally. Meanwhile Tommy changed places with Mary who was directly opposite him in the circle. The Buyer then tried to dash into one of the empty spaces before either Tommy or Mary could get there. If he reached the spot first, then the one left out became Buyer.

From Mexico we jumped to Alaska for an Alaskan Guessing Game. John became IT and was given twenty small sticks of wood. The other children closed their eyes tightly while John arranged the sticks in a series of groups on the ground. When John called ready, the other players shouted out their guess as to the number of sticks on the ground. The one who first guessed the correct number of sticks became the next IT.

Not to overlook our own country the children were next introduced to the good old American game of "Wall Ball". The players numbered off, and scattered about. Number one player tossed the ball against the cement wall and, after the ball left his hand, called a number. The player whose number was called had to catch the ball on the first bounce. If he was successful, he threw it and called a number if he didn't catch the ball on the first bounce; the original thrower threw it again.

By this time the curfew was ringing and our neighborhood children returned home voting the "Block Party" the most fun of all.

Playing different kind of games from neighbour countries can give the children knowledge about other people's culture. It is fun and educated.
