Cooperation Musical Chairs

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A game to promote teamwork and cooperation
Supported by GGNZ Programme Team




1. This game is very similar to the original version, with the same setup of two lines of chairs back to back.
2. Make sure there is one chair LESS than the amount of players.
3. Began playing music while children dance or march around the chairs. When the music stops everyone needs to find a seat.
4. The goal is ensure everyone has a place! As the game continues remove an additional chair after each round. With a smaller amount of chairs available, children will find the need to work together and cooperate in order to find room for everyone. This may mean sitting on laps and sharing chairs. Please note: no one is eliminated or asked to wait in this version.
