How to play

  1. Choose one player to be Mrs Wolf.
  2. Mrs Wolf stands at one end of the play area with their back to the rest of the players. The other players stand in a line at the other end of the play area.
  3. To start the game the players call out “What’s the time Mrs Wolf?” Mrs Wolf turns and answers with a time such as 5 o’clock and then turns back again.
  4. The players then take five steps towards the wolf. The players then call out, “What’s the time Mrs Wolf?” again and Mrs Wolf turns and answers with a different time. Mrs Wolf turns his back again while the players step forward again.
  5. This continues until the players are very close. At this point in the game, Mrs Wolf can respond to the chant with “It’s dinner time!” and try and catch one of the players before they get back to the other side of the play area.
  6. The player who gets caught becomes Mrs Wolf and the game continues. If nobody is caught, the player remains as Mrs Wolf until the next round.
