Frog Detective


Things you’ll need:

A package of index cards
Pen or pencil


Before the guests arrive:

Step 1:  Count out enough index cards so that there is one for each guest.  On one card, write the letter D, on another, write the letter F.  On all the others, write the letter X.


When the guests arrive:

Step 1:  Tell the children to sit in a circle.

Step 2:  Give each child an index card.  Tell then to look at their cards, but not to show anyone else what it says.

Step 3:  The child with the D is the detective, and sits in the center of the circle.  The child with the F is the frog, and they should keep it a secret for now.

Step 4:  When the game starts, the Frog can eat the flies by sticking his tongue out quickly when the detective isn’t looking.  Any fly who sees him stick his tongue out must fall over “dead” 

Step 5:  The detective has to try and figure out who is the frog by watching carefully and trying to catch him sticking his tongue out.

Step 6:  If the frog eats all the flies but one, he wins the game.  If the detective guesses who the frog is before that, he wins.

Step 7:  Play several rounds, so different children get a chance to be the frog and the detective.
