The children sit in a circle.
Each child is given the name of a fruit.
One person is chosen to stand in the center of the circle and repeats the name of one of the fruits three times e.g. orange, orange, orange.
The person around the outside of the circle who is the orange, must interrupt by shouting the word orange, before the other person has managed to say it three times.
If they interrupt successfully the person in the middle chooses another fruit.
If they are not quick enough they replace the person in the middle.
It is a really fun game and encourages the children to concentrate and tests their reactions. It can be used as a time filler or a warm up to a circle time session.
