Play this game outside. It resembles Drop the Handkerchief. Have the children make a large circle and remain standing. Choose one child to start. Have the game starter walk around the outside of the circle and stop behind one person and say, "Hi, I'm ____." The other child turns around and says, "Hi, I'm ____." They then shake hands saying, "How do you do, how do you do, how do you do?" Each then runs in opposite directions around the circle saying "How do you do's" when they meet. The first one back to the spot where the "How do you do's" began is the one to introduce him/herself to another. The game goes on.
