Golden River


  • One player is chosen to be “it” – they stand in the centre of the hall.
  • The remaining players all stand at one end of the room.
  • These players chant – “May we cross your golden river, in your golden boat?”
  • The person in the centre responds – “Only if you’re . . . (wearing blue/a pair of boots/glasses, etc).
  • Anybody who fits these requirements is allowed to cross the room in safety.
  • The remaining players must then try to run across without being tug.
  • Anyone caught by “it” is also on, and helps to choose the conditions laid down for crossing the river.
  • Continue until everybody is caught.
