Here is another hopefully not forgotten party game that is perfect for younger children, needs no supplies and can be adapted to fit in with any party theme (for example: at our pirate party we used "Captain" instead of "Simon".
Firstly choose a leader (this can be yourself or another adult) to act as ‘Simon’ who will call out a series of commands that the children have to follow such as ‘Simon say’s put your hands in the air’. The children must do any commandment that begins with ‘Simon says . . .’ However the leader will put in some trick commands without beginning with ‘Simon says’ such as ‘turn around’ and the children who do this task by mistake are out.
