Mary And Joseph Are Going To Bethlehem

by Rebecca

This game is suitable for children aged over about seven years. It also works well with mixed age groups, even if some of the members are younger than seven years.


Ask all of the participants to sit on chairs or the floor or stand in a circle.

The first person says: "Mary and Joseph are going to Bethlehem and they are taking a donkey".

The next person says: "Mary and Joseph are going to Bethlehem and they are taking a donkey and a cooking pot".

The next person repeats what the second person said and adds an object.

People keep taking turns until somebody forgets the objects or the order in which they are given. This person is out and does not take part in the game any more.

The game finishes when nobody can remember all of the objects in the right order anymore.
