No real fruit is necessary to play this quick-paced game of observation and motion.

Number of participants: Not specified
Intensity level: Medium
Preparations: None or not specified.
Equipment: None or not specified.

Have all the players stand in a tight circle without any gaps around one player who is chosen as “It.” Each player must choose a fruit to be, such as banana, strawberry, watermelon, grape, orange, or cherry, etc. The person who is It calls out a category of fruit, such as red fruit, yellow fruit, citrus fruit, berries, fruit from a tree, or fruit smaller than a baseball, etc. Each player who has chosen a fruit in that category must then leave the circle and run to an empty space created by another player of the same fruit group. The player who is It must try to get into one of the empty spaces, leaving a different player in the middle to be the new It. A couple of rules: You cannot move directly into an empty space next to you, and you cannot stay in the same spot if there are no empty spaces. Repeat the game with a new It and a new category of fruit as long as the game remains fun.
