Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader is a simple and fun game for kids to play.  All you need to play the game Follow the Leader is a group of children and imagination.

How to Play Follow The Leader

The players try and follow everything the leader does.  Children line up in a line and do everything the leader of the line does.   There is no winner or loser in the game of follow the leader.  Children take turns leading and following.

Set up the game
Choose who will be the leader. All the other children playing will line up behind the leader in a single file line.


How To Play: The leader leads the group any direction they want and tries to make up funny things for everyone to do after them. Skip, turn in circles, summersault, crab walk etc. If any player messes up or refuses to follow the leader they are out. The last one standing is the new leader.





Set time limits so everyone gets a chance to be the leader.

For younger children have everyone sing “We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader …. We’re following the leader where ever they may go.”
