How to play the kids game of Monkey in the
Items Needed to Play:
Ball, stuffed animal or similar object
The player in the middle tries to get the monkey (or
ball or some other similar object) as the other players throw it back
and forth over the player in the middles head.
Monkey in the Middle is a simple and fun game for kids to play.
You will need at least 3 players and a ball or object to throw back and forth.
The players line up some distance apart and the two players on each end throw a ball back and forth.
The player in the middle tries to catch the ball when it is thrown.
If the player in the middle catches the ball they switch places with the player that threw the ball that they caught.
Play with more players by having one player in the center of a circle of other players throwing the ball, or have two or more players in the middle trying to catch the ball.
Fun game for birthday parties!
