Hank's 7-Tentacle Challenge

Hank is a special kind of octopus as he only has 7 tentacles. Each one has a mind of its own – can you remember what they're all doing?

Players: 2 or more
Where to play? Indoors or outdoors

How to play

  1. You and your friends are going to be like Hank's tentacles, so line up and hold hands.

  2. The first person shouts out a move, like "Jump!", then everyone does it together.

  3. The next person repeats the move, then adds their own, like "Twist!". Everybody jumps then twists.

  4. Keep repeating and adding moves – see if you can get to 7 in a row. If someone forgets a move or breaks the chain, then you have to start again.
