Get 6 volunteers and have 5 chairs up front. Tell them that they are going to play musical chairs, “but this being (NAME OF YOUTH GROUP), we do Dancing Musical Chairs!” Tell them that they will have to dance, dance, dance, when the music starts.
Blindfold them and start the music. Encourage other kids to cheer them on. After a couple of rounds, pull blindfolds off all kids but one. Cheer like mad and let them dance and scramble for a seat. Keep it up till that poor kid figures it out.
