Snake Dance

What to do:

  1. Have the children make a snake by forming a line of not more than 10 children. Have them put their hands upon the shoulders or waist of the child ahead of them.
  2. The first child or teacher leads the rest of the children in a line around the room or playground.


  • Another game is to have the front child (the snake’s head), try to tag the end child (the tail), upon the sign “go.”
  • Anyone breaking the line causes the snake to die. A new snake is formed by the head becoming the tail and the next child moving up.
