Pass it on game

Physical activity

Practice listen skills by whispering a phrase, passing it from one person to the next until it has passed around the circle several times.

Goal: Practice listening skills.

To play the game Pass It On, stand or sit in a circle. One person begins the game by thinking of a short phrase, then whispering the phrase into the ear of the person standing or sitting beside him/her. That person then whispers it to the next person and so on. The last person says aloud what they heard whispered into their ear. Finally, the first person tells what he/she whispered in the first place.

Play for as long as you like. If you have a small group of only a few players, repeat the phrase around the circle several times before sharing it aloud.

For a more energetic game, have the players run a certain distance or complete a physical challenge before they whisper to the next person. This adds a memory component to the game as well.
