Musical Statues

Description of Activity

This activity can be played as a warm-up or as a quick game. Think of musical chairs and freeze dance. The kids will spread out and be told an exercise to do. For example: Jump Squats, Skipping, Running, Dancing… etc. There will be a speaker to play music on. The speaker will begin to play upbeat music and the kids will start moving. The kids will run around for 30 seconds or less until a coach presses pause. Once the music stops the kids must freeze. If kids are still moving they are eliminated from the game. Keep playing until there is a winner.

Equipment Needed

Speaker, Cones 

Potential Modifications

To incorporate more movement, instead of having kids sit when eliminated, they could go to a separate area and play another game to continue moving.
