Mother, May I?

This game works outside or inside in a large room.
One player is the “mother” and stands at one end of the room.

The other players line up on the opposite side of the room.

The goal is to be the first player to reach the mother.

Each child takes a turn asking the mother if they can do a certain action. For example, the player might say, “Mother, may I take three hops forward?” The mother can answer yes or no. If the mother says no, she must give another action that the player can do. Before the player moves, they must ask, “Mother may I?” and get a yes answer. If the player forgets to ask the question, they must return to their previous position.

The first player to reach the mother wins and becomes the mother for the next round.
