Sleeping lions is a great birthday party game and kids activity to help them wind down after an exciting day. Your children will learn to be still and calm down in the process. Definitely a favourite end-of-day party activity essential!
Number of players:
Have all of the children (except one or two hunters) lie down on the floor in sleeping positions.
Once they are settled, they are not allowed to move – you might use the language “freeze” so they fully understand the object of the game.
The hunters walk through the room and try to make the sleeping lions move by making them laugh, telling them jokes, and so on.
However, the hunters are not allowed to touch the lions.
Once any lion moves they are tapped and get up and join the hunters.
The last child still on the floor wins!
