What to do

  1. Pretend to be a lion with a friendly roar, and then start stalking your ‘prey’ from behind the couch. This is sure to set off a jungle full of giggles.
  2. Get down on all fours and chase after your child (or children). Then, when they’re least expecting it, grab them and ‘eat them up’ with lots of tickles. To make it even more fun, turn the tables and get them to chase you!
