It’s that time again and hopefully the image below makes sense! This week’s Active Saturday game is:

Please Mr President, May I Cross America?


Mr/Mrs President stands at one end of the play area and the children line up against the wall at the other end. In unison, the children shout, ‘Please Mr President, May we Cross America?’. Mr President will call back something like, ‘You may cross my country if you’re wearing something yellow.’

Those wearing something yellow are allowed to cross the play area without being caught. Once they reach the other end of the play area the rest of the children who are not wearing anything yellow try to run across the play area without being tagged by Mr President.

If a child is tagged they become a Government Official and try to help Mr President catch more children.

The game ends when all children have been caught.
