The players form pairs that link arms with each other. The leader choose a pair to be separated, and they become a ‘polar bear’ and a ‘penguin’ (you could also play as Stork & Grisly or Bear & Princess). The polar bear must try to catch the penguin. The polar bear and penguin must make the appropriate actions as they run: the polar bear screams loudly with raised front claws and the penguin scurries/waddles away. The penguin can run up to another pair and link arms with one of them. The person on the other side becomes the new polar bear. The original polar bear becomes a penguin and must run away from the new polar bear and so on.
