Often the first game that children learn to play at parties, this will always be a favourite.
You will need:
A CD player or similar with dancing music or children's favorites
Some little prizes
How to play:
The children dance around in the centre of the room until the music stops, when they must sit down on the floor as quickly as possible. The last one down is eliminated.
If you are playing with very young children you may find it easier to eliminate the children by asking them to dance in a different area of the room, rather than expecting them to stop completely!
It can be better to award a prize to the last 2 or 3 children standing rather than try to pick one winner.
