Get the group to sit in a circle and then select one person to be "it". They must walk around the circle, tapping each person on the head as they go and say "duck" or "goose". If they say "duck" while tapping someone on the head, nothing needs to happen. But if "goose" is said, then the person who gets tapped on the head must get up and chase after the person who tapped them. The tapper's aim is to get all the way around the circle (one direction) and sit down in the now empty spot. If they make it, the other player is now it. If they get caught, they are still it and have to have another go at tapping.
If it gets boring, add in some twists, like making the players use a different set of words. So instead of "duck" and "goose" maybe use "apple" and "orange" or "hockey" and "football" - up to you!
Oh! Or this is a spontaneous idea, if the weather is hot, give the "it" person a water balloon, and when saying "goose" they must break the water balloon over their heads?
