Coloured Eggs

How to Play

Choose 1 player to be the Wolf. The other players are Coloured Eggs. Each Coloured Egg quietly chooses an everyday colour for herself, keeping it a secret from the Wolf.

Decide on a nest for the Eggs, a starting point for the Wolf that is 10 to 15 steps away from the nest, and a round-trip course for the players to run, such as to a tree and back or once around the house. The Wolf stands at the starting point and the Eggs stand in the nest.

The Wolf calls out KNOCK-KNOCK and the Eggs answer WHO’S THERE? The Wolf says THE WOLF.

The Eggs say WHAT DO YOU WANT? The Wolf answers COLOURED EGGS. The Eggs yell WHAT COLOUR?

The Wolf calls out a colour. If no Egg has that colour, he calls out another colour. When an Egg’s colour is called, she runs through the course and the Wolf chases her. If the Wolf tags the Egg before she gets back to the nest, the 2 players switch places and all the Eggs select a new colour. If the Wolf doesn’t tag the Egg, he calls out another colour.

The object of the game is to avoid getting caught by the Wolf.
