About the activity
It’s a case of the more the merrier in this fun, energetic game! The concept is simple – while the music is playing, the children dance. But as soon as the music stops, they must freeze and remain absolutely still.
You’ll need one person to control the music and referee the game. Once the referee stops the music, they keep an eye out for any movement from the players. If they spot any shakes, wobbles or twitches, the player is out the game! After 20 seconds or so, the referee restarts the music, and the game continues until there is only one player left standing.
