What You'll Need:

  • 1 beach towel per guest
  • A portable music player
  • A CD of beach music
  • Stickers or other small prizes

At the Party:
  1. Lay the beach towels on the ground with space in between each so that no two overlap.
  2. Tell your guests that when the music starts playing, they should start dancing or marching around the area with the towels.
  3. Then, when the music stops, they must lie down on a towel.
  4. In the first round of the game, there will be enough towels for every player.
  5. To begin the game, start playing the music. Stop the music after a few moments, and wait while each player lies down on a beach towel.
  6. Start the music again, and then pick up one beach towel while the children are moving to the music.
  7. When you stop the music the second time, all but one child will have a beach towel to lay on; this child is 'out" for the rest of the game.
  8. Continue playing, removing a beach towel after each round, until only two children are left in the game.
  9. The child who reaches the last beach towel is the winner.
Note: For younger children, consider giving each child a small prize (e.g. a sticker or small piece of candy) as they are eliminated from the game to avoid hurt feelings.
