How To Play Doggy Doggy Who's Got Your Bone?

This is a classic kids party game and is great fun especially for a group of junior youth kids.

One kid will sit on a chair facing away from the group with their eyes closed and have the keys or coin underneath their chair.

One kid from the rest of the group can be chosen (silently) to take the object and sit back down. At this points all the kids can "look guilty" by pretending they have the object behind their back or hidden in their hands.

Tell the kid on the chair to open their eyes and turn around. The group of kids can chant "Doggy, Doggy, who's got your bone?" or "Doggy, Doggy, where's your bone?". They have three guesses to guess who's got their bone.

If they guess correctly, they can stay as the dog. If they guess incorrectly, then they must swap over to give someone else a go.

Materials Needed

keys or a coin

This would be a good ESL activity for younger learners.
