Sumo is a really fun game to play with kids, especially in Asia where they are probably familiar with the sport.
How to Play:
1) Draw a circle on the floor with a whiteboard marker or make one with a long rope or string.
2) Call a student up to demonstrate with. Step into the circle like a sumo wrestler would by putting your hands on your knees and stamping your feet into place. Be overly dramatic here. Motion for the student to do the same.
3) Call out a body part. The two students in the circle must then touch the respective body part on their opponent (probably the all time funniest one to do is “back”)
4) You can do king of the hill style where the winner always stays in or break the students into teams and have them get points for the fastest.
Note: Remember to make a student the ref who calls out the body parts after a while. You can also get more than one sumo circle going at time. Be careful with body parts like “eyes”.
This game is always a hit and kids thoroughly enjoy it. If you can, show a youtube video of some sumo wrestlers before playing.
