  The Poo Bomb

Age range:

Young kids, Kids

Birthday party, New Year’s Eve, Halloween, Easter

Indoor, Outdoor

You will need:
A small bag like a sandwich bag filled with something gooey: green jelly or commercial goo will do. However the Poo Bomb could be anything, a cushion or ball would be fine.

Two adults (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:
This is the reverse of Pass the parcel, the idea is to avoid being the person holding the Poo Bomb when the music stops.

The children sit in a circle, one adult is responsible for fair play, the other controls the music and should not look at the circle.

The Poo Bomb is given to the oldest child.
When the music plays the Poo Bomb is passed around the circle, child to child.
At random moments the music is stopped using the pause button
When the music stops the child holding the Poo Bomb is out and leaves the circle
The music is then re-started.
The last child remaining is the winner

A Pirate theme variation would be to call the Poo Bomb the ’Cursed Cannonball’ instead, imagination can do the rest. Use sea shanties or "piratical" music for the game.
