Please Crocodile, May We Cross the River
How to Play
- All of the children stand beside each other on one side of the room or play space. One child is chosen as the crocodile, and they stand in the middle of the room. The players call, “Please crocodile, may we cross the river? If not, why not? What’s your favorite colour?”
- The crocodile chooses a colour, and all the players who are wearing that colour are safe to cross to the other side of the room past the crocodile.
- After those with the colour have crossed to the other side, the children who are not wearing the colour the crocodile called out then try to run to the other side of the room without getting caught by the crocodile.
- The adult in the room then picks the next crocodile.
