Game description

Participants stand or sit in a circle, in the gym or outdoors. Before the game begins, everyone needs to consider a sentence in which both his name and a particular characteristic is mentioned. For example, "I'm Andrew, and like to paint." Each participant now says his sentence. Now in all following rounds, those sentences are to be repeated, yet, at this time in a particular mood, such as happy, sad, angry, etc. Because this sentence does not always, match the particular mood, a variety of funny elements are created. With this game, kids not only learn to get to know each other but also how to express particular feelings. To round it all up, the kids can throw a ball to each other, with the child, who’s catching the ball repeating his sentence once again.
