Caution: This game can get rough.
All the players (except one) line up at one side of the
playing area. The remaining player (The Bulldog) stands
in the middle. When he is ready, he shouts "Go" and all
the other players have to get to the other side without
being caught. Any player the The Bulldog can lift off the
ground while he shouts "British Bulldog", joins him in
the middle as a Bulldog. On subsequent runs, the
Bulldogs may work together. The winner is the last one
to be caught.
Split the patry goers into teams of three and give each
team a toilet roll. Two persons then wrap the third in the
toilet roll so that they look like an Egyptian Mummy.
The winning team is the one who in a set time (say 2
minutes) have the neatest and most covered Mummy.
Everyone stands a circle (except one who is standing in
the middle) and has been told to remember a different
station name. The person in the middle calls out two
names. The stations have to change places quickly,
before the person in the middle can get to one of the
empty spaces. Who ever is left without a place is the
person in the middle for the next game.
Arrange for teams of about 8 to stand in a line, one
behind the other (arranged boy, girl, boy,...). Give each
team an orange which the first person should tuck under
his chin. This should be passed to the person behind.
