Party Game Central



A musical chair like game where you hop on a newspaper when the music stops.

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


6 or more players


Music source, newspapers


This is a variation on musical chairs. Instead of chairs, you use newspaper spread randomly on the ground. The idea is that the children are campers, and the newspaper represents dry ground. As the music plays, the campers move around the newspaper, but don't step onto it. When the music stops they rush to dry ground to keep their feet dry. Count slowly to five to give the children a chance to step onto the newspaper. After each round, remove sheets of newspaper until, after several rounds, only one sheet is left. You'll all have some fun as lots of children try to fit onto the one sheet of paper.
