How To Play: Players sit in a circle. One player is chosen to be
It and stands in the middle (this will create an open chair). The
player who is It then tells the circle members sitting on either side of
the open chair which direction the circle should move. Circle members
then begin to move to the next chair in the designated direction as an
open seat becomes available to them. It tries to sit in an open chair.
When she succeeds, the player left standing is It and the game begins
Plan for Success:
Carefully decide how players in the middle will claim the chair they
want to sit in, to avoid struggles for chairs between players.
Variations: Participants in the circle can slap the
open chair with their hands to reverse the direction in which the circle
is moving. This game is also called Shuffle Your Buns.
