1) All participants except for the leader line up to form a “starting line.”
The leader should walk away from the group to mark the “finish line” in front of them.
2) The leader counts to a number like 10, and when the leader is counting, the other participants run, hop, skip, or gallop towards the finish line.
3) When the leader gets to 10, (s)he claps loudly and everyone must freeze still like a statue or tree. Those caught moving must return to the starting line.
The person who reaches the finish line first is the leader for the next game.
