What You'll Need

  • A potato
  • A music player

At the Party:
  1. Have the children sit in a circle, almost shoulder to shoulder.
  2. Turn on Celtic or Irish jig music and hand the potato to someone in the circle.
  3. As the music plays, the children must pass the potato as fast as possible.
  4. Randomly stop the music.
  5. Whoever has the potato when the music stops must sit outside of the circle.
  6. Keep playing until only one player is left.
