An old children’s game. One person is Grandmother or Grandfather, standing with their back to the class. Everyone else has to sneak up and try and touch them on the shoulder. The Grandparent can turn around whenever they want and if they catch anyone moving that person goes back to the beginning and starts sneaking up again. The first person to touch Grandmother is the winner.
Good game to get people playing together.
- People sneaking up are pirates, zombies or cheeky 1950s cockneys, to encourage more fun in a game.
