How to Play: Mother May I?
How to play: One player is designated as the mother (boys can be the father). The mother/father stands at one end of the room, and the remaining players line up at the opposite end. Players take turns asking "Mother/Father, may I (movement suggestion)?" The mother/father answers either "Yes, you may" or "No, but you may (another movement suggestion)." Even if the mother/father makes an unfavorable suggestion, such as return to the starting point, the player must perform it.
The rules: Some suggestions of what the players may ask the mother/father include: take (number of) steps/baby steps/giant steps/frog leaps forward.
How to win: Be the first person to reach the mother or father. That person becomes the next mother or father if another round is played.
What else you need to know: The mother/father can reduce the number of steps being asked to take or even tell the player to take that number of steps backward instead.
