what's the time Mr. Wolf?

  1. Chase game: one person would be Mr. Wolf and stand or lean against a wall with his/her back turned to everybody. The others then shout "What's the time Mr. Wolf?". Mr. Wolf would then shout different times, then eventually would shout "Dinner time! Coming to get you!" and run after you in a rather frightening way!

  2. Sophie reminded us of a slight variation in this game as she played it in primary school:

    Someone is picked from a group to be the 'Wolf' and stands with their back towards the rest of the group... or facing a wall. The others then try to creep up on the 'wolf'. If they touch the wolf they win and are next 'in'. However the 'wolf' can turn round at any time to try to catch the people behind her/him moving.
