How to Play What Time Is It Mr. Wolf

Mr. Wolf stands with their back towards the other children.

The children then ask in unison “What time is it Mr. Wolf?”


Mr. Wolf then answers with a time - such as “It’s 7 o’clock”.

The kids then take that many steps towards Mr. Wolf.


At anytime Mr. Wolf can answer “Supper time!”.   When the wolf answers "supper time" Mr. Wolf turns around, chases and tags as many kids as possible before they reach their “home“.


Who ever is tagged by Mr. Wolf then also becomes a wolf and lines up with “Mr. Wolf” to begin play again. The last person to not be tagged wins and becomes the new wolf.
