Games: Toddler-Friendly Musical Chairs

Games: Toddler-Friendly Musical Chairs

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Like a training-wheels version of the traditional game, this adaptation offers all the exhilaration with none of the apprehension because -- shh -- there are actually enough seats for everyone!


  • Chairs (as many as their are children playing)
  • Music


  1. To play, simply set out as many chairs as there are children, then put on some boisterous music.
  2. Tell the kids to dance in a big circle around the chairs until they hear the music stop, when they must - quickly, quickly! - find a chair and sit in it until the music resumes.
  3. With all the scrambling and squealing, you'd never guess there are always enough seats to go around.
