The chicken game

We've launched #DreamBigAtHome!

Our new lockdown website has hundreds of activities and games to do at home, weekly challenges to try and a regular programme of live workshops and events online, as well as information on how our groups can operate during the COVID-19 outbreak.


Aim: to have fun

You need: chairs (or equivalent) and space

Duration:  however long you want

How to play:  Everyone is sat on a chair spread out around the room except for one person who is standing at one end of the room. At the other end of the room is a chair. The person standing up has to try and get to the empty chair BUT they can only walk like a chicken (knees together toes pointed in and at a slow steady pace, making a clucking sound, flapping their “wings”). Everyone else is a chicken on their perch.  They can try to stop the walking chicken from reaching the empty chair (perch) by moving quickly between perches.
