A game like musical chairs with wrapped packages. Only one package has the prize!

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


4 to 10 players


Toy, wrapping paper, newspaper


To play this game must have 4-10 players. First you wrap one small gift or toy (must be light weight) with some newspaper around it and wrapping paper over and over again until it is as big as your head. Then take some newspaper and wad it up into 5 or 6 large wads or balls and wrap each wad with wrapping paper as if it were a gift. These packages become the hot potatoes. Have everyone sit in a circle. Someone randomly chooses a wrapped package for that round. Then you play music and when the music stops the person with the package gets to open it. There is only one gift and no one knows which one has it.
