For example: Head against arm. Now one child of the couple must put his head against the arm of the other kid.You check if everyone is doing it alright.
Another order could be "feet against shoulder". After a couple of orders you say the line "me against me". Then the children must make another couple. And you have to find a child to make a couple with you. So in this way one child has no couple and then it his turn to give the orders.
