Hello Kitty

A simple and short group game all about trying to make each other crack a smile. Participants take turns being 'kitties' and 'puppies'. The puppies try to make the kitties crack a smile or laugh. The last kitty standing is the winner! An original from the The Northern Quarter Agency.

  1. Step 1:

    Set up by drawing a line in the middle of the room with tape.

    Split the group in two and have them stand on opposite sides of the line. One side are the kittens. The other side are the puppies.

  2. Step 2:

    Kittens cannot smile or laugh.

    Puppies must say hello to the kittens in any way possible and try to make any of them smile or laugh. Puppies may not cross the line on the floor, everything else is allowed.

  3. Step 3:

    When a kitten smiles or laughs, it automatically becomes a puppy and must cross to the other side of the line.

    Continue until only one kitten is left standing as the winner!

    Facilitator notes

    To extend the game: Switch kittens into puppies and do it again; OR make the winning kittens into a team, see which one lasts longer.
