What You'll Need:

  • Pictures of airplanes, or construction paper to cut your own.
  • Scissors
  • Music

  1. Make photo copies of the airplane on letter sized heavy paper.
  2. Alternatively, cut one large airplane shape for each guest from construction paper.
  3. Scatter the airplanes randomly on the floor of the main party area.
  4. Leave space in between each so that no two overlap.

At the Party:
  1. Tell your guests that when the music starts playing, they should hold their arms out and fly like airplanes.
  2. Then, when the music stops, they must each find an airplane on which to land.
  3. To begin the game, start playing the music. Stop the music after a few moments, and wait while each of your guests finds an airplane.
  4. In the first round, there should be one airplane per player.
  5. Start the music again, and then pick up one airplane while the children are moving around the room.
  6. When you stop the music the second time, all but one child will have an airplane to stand on; this child must land his jet plane (i.e. sit out until the end of the game).
  7. Continue playing, removing an airplane after each round, until only two children are left in the game.
  8. The last child to stand on an airplane with both feet is the winner.
