1. DRAGON. All children taking part in a game make a chain and put their hands on friend’s shoulders. First person has name “a head of the dragon” and last one – “a tail of the dragon”. The chain of kids starts running. “The head” tries to catch “the tail”. Using hands is not allowed. If “the tail” has caught “the head”, they switch the spots. “The head” becomes “the tail”. It is an ancient game.

2. BLIND CAT. Number of players: 5, but 10 players can play too. A cat must be chosen. A mouse covers his eyes with a black handkerchief, and then the cat has to find a mouse and guess the person. A cat becomes an angry mouse and a mouse becomes a blind cat.

3. jUNGLE-JINGLE .“Jungle- Jingle” is a song-game, loved by many Ukrainians. The children sing, when they are moving in the circle and holding their hands. “Jungle” is running in the circle and when the song is over, “Jungle” stands in the circle, then “Jungle – Jingle” will be a new person.
