Game: Fruit Basket (a Sangam Game)

Materials: Chairs (optional)

The children sit in a circle. Each child is a fruit. There should be many of the same fruits, for example 6 apples, 6 oranges, etc. One child is in the middle. That child yells the name of a fruit such as "banana" and all of the children who are bananas must stand up and run to sit in the chair of another banana. The child in the middle also runs for a chair. The child who does not get a chair will stand in the middle and call out the next fruit. Sometimes, the child will call "fruit basket" and everyone will run for a new chair.

It’s fun to use fruits that are common in India, such as: papaya, banana, pomegranate, sweet lime ( mosambi), orange, pineapple, coconut, etc.
