Playing 'What's the time Mr Giant?'
One child is chosen to be Mr Giant, who then stands at one end of the playing area (This could be outside or in one of the rooms of your house)
The other players stand in a line at the other end.
Mr Giant turns his back to commence play.
The players call out, "What's the time Mr Giant and Mr Giant turns and answers with a time (i.e. 3 o'clock).
He then turns his back again while the children advance again chanting "What's the time Mr Giant?" To which Mr Giant will continue to respond until the players come very close.
Once the line of players is close to Mr Giant, he can respond to the chant with "It's dinner time!" at which point, he will chase the players back to the starting line with the aim to catch one of the them, who will then become Mr Giant for the next round of the game.
