Here's a game from childhood that you might remember... One person is picked to be the wolf... the rest of the kids are colored eggs. Each egg picks a secret color and the game begins like this...
Wolf: Knock knock.
Eggs: Who's there?
Wolf: The big bad wolf.
Eggs: What do you want?
Wolf: Colored eggs.
Eggs: What color?
The wolf then shouts out a color... any kid with that color as his/her secret color runs to the end of the yard and back. If the wolf catches someone that kid becomes the new wolf... if not he/she remains the wolf for another round.
Anyone else remember this game?
I went on a school picnic with my daughter yesterday and I was surprised to hear the number of rhymes and clapping games that they have that are exactly the same or similar to the ones I remember.
What are some of your favorite rhymes from childhood?
Speaking of colored eggs...
