Body Part Musical Chairs

An active music game for junior youth and large groups

How To Play Body Part Musical Chairs

Materials Needed

chairs, music

So I am a sunday school teacher at my church and I have found this youth group game to be both fun and funny!

You have x amount of kids and one less chair. It is basically like musical chairs but using their body parts.

Start the music and let the kids move around for a bit. After a random amount of time, pause the music. When the music stops, yell out a body part (ie. toes) and the kids must put that body part on the chair (instead of just sitting down normally). The last one to do it, will be eliminated along with a chair.

To mix it up a bit, you can call out two body parts.

I think the game is that it's musical chairs but once the music stops, the leader will call out a body part. The people still in game will have to put that body part on the chair. E.g. thumb. When it's down to the last two people, two body parts will be called out to make it harder.

Do they have to put the body part named on the chair?
