CHALLENGE OF THE DAY:

Before You Start 

Practice the call and response of “I am the Big Cheese,” with all players responding “You are the Big Cheese.”

Introduce the 3 different movements: Cheddar Cheese (hands circled in front), String Cheese (arms stretched overhead), Stinky Cheese (waving hand in front of nose)

 Set Up 

All players stand in a straight line, in a semi-circle or circle so you can see everyone and identify who’s made which sign. Choose who will be the first “Big Cheese”

How to Play 

The leader begins each round by saying “I am the Big Cheese!” and the other players respond “You are the Big Cheese!”

The leader then counts “1…2…3!” On the “three,” players pick one of the 3 predetermined movements to show (Cheddar, String, or Stinky Cheese). At the same time, the Leader shows one of the 3 movements.

Players who make the same movement as the leader are recycled (or out)

The object of the game is for players to stay in the game by doing a different sign than the leader. The last player standing gets to be the next “Big Cheese.” 

At-Home Accommodations 

Play sitting down if space is limited indoors

 Challenge ideas 

Play the game while standing on one leg!

Challenge the players to come up with more cheeses and associated actions.
