What Time Is It Mr. Wolf?

ages: 3-5
play space: Open area
number of players: 4
play it with: No equipment


If the Wolf tags a player, they become the Wolf and the game begins again.

How to play:

One player is the wolf and stands with their back to the other players. The other players line up 25 steps away from the wolf and call out, “What time is it Mr. Wolf?” and the wolf will respond with a time (e.g. 10 o’clock). The other players then take as many steps as the number called out – 10 in this example. At any time the wolf can answer “Dinnertime!” and turn around and chase the other players until the run behind the starting line. Anyone tagged becomes the new wolf.
