Once you've played lots and they have the hang of it, invite tamariki to make up new commands and actions for the class repertoire. And play the game a bit faster.
You could also introduce an elimination component, where players who do not follow the correct command, sit out and watch, and you play until just one person is left (your winner!)
Another options is to add some fun two-player options, like:
- Man overboard: Players must work in pairs, facing each other. Using two hands, player one holds one of player two’s arms. Player two then leans back as if he’s falling overboard, and they balance.
- Octopus: Again, working in pairs, player one gets down on all-fours, and player two does the same, over the top, to create an X-shape.
