πŸ“Β Tell everyone that you will be shouting out β€˜head’, β€˜shoulders’ and β€˜knees’ and they have to follow the instruction

πŸ“ Tell everyone that when you shout β€˜cup’, they have to grab the cup. First person to grab it wins!

πŸ“ Rotate everyone so they don’t continually face the same person

πŸ“ Tell everyone to count how many wins they have!
