Smile if You Love Me

Have the students form a circle and place one student in the center of the circle. The object of the game is for the student in the middle to make another student smile while those around him try to keep from smiling. The student in the middle will choose any other student, stand directly in front of him or her, and say, “Smile if You Love Me.” The center student may also make funny faces, but may not touch them. In response, the circle member must try to keep a straight face. If the student does not smile, s/he remains part of the bigger circle. If the student does smile, s/he must join the center student in trying to make someone else smile. The game continues until everyone is smiling.
