Ducks and Cows



Equipment: None

Recommended Players: 12+


This is a short silly game.

Have players sit down, spread around the gym. Quickly go to each player and randomly whisper into their ear either "Duck" or "Cow". Aim for about half and half. When you say "Go", they must crawl around and try to group up with all the other Cows if they are a Cow, or all the other Ducks if they are a Duck. Cows can only make one sound: "Moo". Ducks can only say "Quack". End the game when all players have found their group and then announce which was quicker, the Ducks or the Cows. Play it again. Have them do it with their eyes closed!


Add more animals, like Dogs ("Ruff") and Cats ("Meow") or others. Really challenge them by having them find their group without making any sound at all. Try playing this with a really large group if you have the opportunity.
