Games & Outdoors : Friendship

Musical Hugs added 1-26-00 Original Author Unknown

Put on music and encourage children to move the way the music makes them feel.  Tell them when the music stops, they need to look for a friend to hug. Continue with music, stop, hug another friend, etc.

Do Not Topple The Tower added 1-26-00 Original Author Unknown

Let each child pick block. Start the tower by putting one block in the middle of the circle and have each child add there block one at a time. Remind them to try to keep the tower from falling over. When the tower topples start over again. The kids love this one!


Musical Shares added 1-26-00 Original Author Unknown

Need:
To start one chair for each child
A small group of children
Music

Play this game just like musical chairs, but with a twist. Each time the music stops and you take a chair out, do not have any children sit out. They have to share a chair with a friend instead (see musical SHARES). My kids love this game and ask to play everyday since I introduced it. It really helps with teaching sharing and is great for preschoolers because no one is a losers.


Hand Hugs added 1-17-01 Original Author Unknown

Sit the children in a circle holding hands. The teacher starts the chain of "hand hugs" by gently squeezing the hand of the child next to her. The child then passes on the hand hug to the next child, etc. around circle.
