Party Game Central



This kids game is a lot like musical chairs but with a beanbag - the hot potato.

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


2 or more players


A beanbag or other "potato" which is light weight and can be thrown or passed around the circle


Players form a circle. One person must sit out and be the music player. A bean bag (the hot potato) is passed from player to player while the music player, who shouldn't be looking at the group just to be fair, plays a stereo, sings, whistles or claps. When the music or clapping stops, the player who has the bean bag is out and sits in the center. The last one out wins. Stops should be made frequently so the game moves quickly and players will not be out for a long period. Try to act like the bean bag is really, really hot!
