Sir Topham Hatt Says
Children will have fun playing this version of "Simon Says." The birthday child can start this game by being Sir Topham Hatt while the others can pretend to be Thomas, Percy, or another favorite character. Only when your child shouts "Sir Topham Hatt," do the children follow the command. For example, "Sir Topham Hatt says, bend your knees," "Sir Topham Hatt says, put your hands on a friend's shoulders," "Sir Topham Hatt, pretend you're an engine." If they don't hear "Sir Topham Hatt," no one should move. The game should be all about having fun, not winning!
One player is Sir Topham Hatt and has to pick an engine on the Island of Sodor. All the children can ask 20 questions of Sir Topham Hatt, all of which must be answered by 'yes' or 'no'. Go around in a circle so each child get a chance to ask a question. The child who guesses the correct engine gets to become Sir Topham Hatt at and the game begins again.
