How To Play Where The Wind Blows

Everyone sits in a circle on chairs and one person is in the middle.

The person in the middle yells out "the wind blows towards people who _________". Everyone who matches up with what they said has to get up and swap seats with someone else (who isn't sitting next to them). While this is happening, the person in the middle would also try to steal a seat. Inevitably someone will be left in the middle and process continues.

Some examples of what the person in the middle could say are:
The wind blows towards people who ate cocopops for breakfast today.
The wind blows towards people who have been overseas.
The wind blows towards people who play basketball.
The wind blows towards people who have a name that starts with B.
The wind blows towards people who like eating chips.

Materials Needed

this is a great game!
It can be played for 45 minutes or just 10 minutes, which is perfect for a time filler.
I am the activities coordinator at a camp and we play a version of this game.
Instead of using chairs, you can just use one shoe or any other place marker.
The kids absolutely love this.
