*Alternative ending - replaces part between the astericks:

*I win
Fair and square,
Now I get to
Pull your hair!*

Instructions to Play the Game:


1. Tic
Tac
Toe,

[Hands together and held out sideways (i.e. tips of fingers pointing out) - on each word tap the other person's hands which are also held out together, sideways.]

2. Three in a row,
[While holding your hands out together sideways (i.e. tips of fingers pointing out) against and next to your partners hands, which are also held out together, sideways - 1 hand only goes up to clap one of partner's hand above, then 1 clap in the middle, then 1 clap below.]

Rock, Paper, Scissors and Shoot!
Rock, Paper, Scissors and Shoot!
(Play the game on each line.)

4. I win,
You lose,
Now you have
A big fat bruise!

(We think you lightly pinch the losers cheeks here. We welcome better instructions – if there are any!)
