Where do you live Shiritori

target_English : Where do you live...

This is a cool way of doing the classic game of Shiritori even if your kids don't know how to read or write. The basic idea with shiritori is that you use the last letter of a word as the first letter of the next word. e.g. you say "egg", then I say "game" then you say "elephant" etc. etc. But in this version you ask the kids "Where do you live?". One kid answers, for example, "I live in Fukuoka", any place name is OK. Then this kid says to another kid "Where do you live?" and that kid has to answer with a place that begins with "ka" (this is how the rule works for Japanese place names) e.g. "I live in Kagawa" etc. etc. It sounds a bit tricky but the kids love it! A good variation is to put the kids in a circle, you ask the question and the quickest kid to put their hand up gets to answer and gets a prize or counter thrown at them!
I got this idea from Nicky in Yanagawa.Thank you!
