This is a popular one with the younger children…

You need a music source such as a CD player with some pop/dance music and ideally 3-4 older children or parents to help you spot the first few wobblers.

Start the music and get everyone dancing. Make sure everyone is dancing energetically, not just swaying on the spot! When you stop the music, they’ve got to freeze. Anyone who moves too much has to drop out and move out of the area. We normally let them have a dip into a treat box of sweets/chocs to keep them happy while the others continue…

By the time there’s only a few left, you’ll probably have all the others as judges too! Be warned, this one can be hard to determine by the end, so it’s worth having two or three prizes prepared for this game, as you don’t want to let things drag on too long, so declare a tie if needed.
