Musical Newspapers

    Before you play this game, set up an outdoor area with a marker at each corner and enough sheets of newspaper so that each player has one sheet to stand on.

1. Each child starts the game by standing on a sheet of newspaper (one per player), with four markers around the outside. Remove one sheet of paper.

2. When the music starts, the children walk around the outside of the markers. When the music stops, they rush into the middle and try to stand on a sheet of paper.

3. The child who does not find a piece of newspaper to stand on is out for the rest of this game. Continue removing one sheet of paper each round until one player is left (the Winner).

NOTE: An adult should supervise the game to ensure players are not too rough and hurt each other.
