Banana, Banana, Banana SPLIT

by Serving-Ice-Cream

This ice cream game is a fun game for all ages. It's a twist on Duck, Duck Goose, a traditional favorite that has stood the test of time! Playing this game with a sundae flair is perfect for an ice cream sundae party. There are several variations of this game that makes this game fun for all ages of children!

What You'll Need
  • A group of children

  • An open area large enough for them to sit in a circle and run around the circle

No Set Up Required

How to Play

Have children sit in a circle.

Choose one child to be "it."

Have this child walk around the circle, tapping each child lightly on the head, saying "Banana" every time he taps someone.

Finally, the child taps someone on the head and says "Banana SPLIT" ... and then splits, running around the circle as fast as he can!

The person who he tapped on the head and said "Banana SPLIT," stands up and chases him around the circle.

The goal is to be the first to sit in the now open spot in the circle.

Whoever sits in the spot first, remains there and the other child continues the game by walking around the circle, tapping heads, and saying, "Banana, Banana, Banana SPLIT!"


Older children enjoy tackling each other on their way around the circle.

If you do decide to do this, be sure to offer supervision and be sure to take the proper precautions to make sure no one gets hurt.

Be sure to play the tackle version on a soft ground surface.
