What You'll Need:

  • Several chairs (one for each guest)
  • A spindle of string
  • Children's music

Preparation:
  1. Set the chairs in a circle, seats facing outward.
  2. Cut one 2'–3' length of string for each guest. Set up a CD or tape player in the playing area.


At the Party:
  1. Explain the rules of musical chairs to your guests, but tell them that there's a twist: they will have to waddle around the chairs while the music is playing!
  2. Have each player tie a length of string around their legs at the knees.
  3. Help your guests with this, if needed.
  4. The string should be snug enough to stay on, but not too tight.
  5. The players will now have to waddle when they walk.
  6. To begin, start the music. The players must waddle around the circle of chairs while the music is playing.
  7. Stop the music randomly. When the music stops, the players must try to find a seat.
  8. After each round, take away a chair before you restart the music.
  9. The player who doesn't get a chair is out for the rest of that round.
  10. Keep playing and removing chairs until there are only two players and one chair left.
  11. The last player to get a seat wins!
