How to Play: One Potato
What you need: All you need is a group of children.
How to play: This is a counting-off game designed to select someone as "it" for games like Hide and Seek, Kick the Can or Tag. The following song is sung while counting each person off by syllable: "One potato, two potato, three potato, four, five potato, six potato, seven potato, more." Whoever is pointed out on the final syllable is "it."
The rules: For sake of fairness, the person singing must count him/herself off as well.
How to win: In this game, it's not so much winning as it is becoming "it."
What else you need to know: Players can use their fists to resemble potatoes when counting. This way, they also have two chances to stay in the game because of using both fists.
