Buzzy Bees is a fun, silly and active game that can be played in person or in an online group.
How to play
One person in the game is the caller and they call out ‘buzzy bees, buzzy bees’ and then do a buzzing sound.
All the players fly about as a bee.
The caller then shouts out a letter/ colour / category.
Everyone freezes as something in the category / starting with the letter / that is the colour.
The caller then guesses what everyone is — or the players could come out of their shape to guess the others (eg. caller says ‘what is Daphne?’ everyone else stops to look at her and guess).
This works well online as long as the players can move around in their own space and still be visible on the camera.

For more group games take a look at Woodcraft folk’s book — Games, Games, Games. This is publication with around 250 group games. The games are all essentially cooperative in nature and develop skills and attitudes which encourage learning together and supporting one another.
