Playing musical bumps

This is a fun game to play at a party!

  1. The children dance to music.
  2. The music stops.
  3. The children sit down quickly.
  4. The last child to sit down is 'out' (they stop playing).
  5. The children stand up and dance again.
  6. They play until there is only one child dancing. He or she is the winner!
