Young kids, Kids
Birthday party, Christmas, New Years Eve
You will need:
Some children. One adult (minimum) and a music player of some sort with lots of volume and a pause facility a portable CD player is ideal.
How to play:
The music is started and the kids must dance.
When the music stops the kids must sit down.
The last one sitting in each round goes out, judged by the adult playing the music. If he cant decide then just play another round.
Having two or three adults judging is better, and they have to agree on who goes out. If the last two or three kids are identical for three rounds at the end of the game then they all win.
1. A version called "Musical cushions" can be used instead, it gives a softer landing as they have to sit on a cushion. It also means that a kid may miss the cushion and roll off making it easier to eliminate players.
