Penguin Races

How to Play:

Everyone stands in a circle, and the madrich/lead penguin starts the following spiel to teach the game... Penguins race like this (pat thighs quickly to make noise like penguins' feet) Sometimes they take a left turn (lean left and shout "wheeee!") Sometimes they take a right turn (lean right and shout "wheee!") Often there's a chicane on the track (go left then right and go "whee-whee!") There are tunnels on the race track (duck down and shake you bum going "wibble-wibble-wibble-wibble!) And sometimes penguins like to jump (jump up and squeak "Hooray!") Then everyone pats their thighs quickly and the madrich starts the game with a REady Set Go! Then its up to the madrich to shout out the commands and everyone does them at the same time - left turn, right turn, chicane, tunnel, jump Speed up with more actions as you near the end of the course. Always finish with a jump and a big "Hooray!"
