Kids Chairs Neighbor

Procedure: 

1.  Arrange chairs in a circle; one chair per person playing, minus one.

2.  One person stands in the middle of the circle and approaches a person sitting in the circle and asks: “Do you love your neighbor?”

3.  If that person answers: “Yes, I love my neighbor,” the two people sitting on either side of him/her, quickly tries to exchange seats before the person in the middle sits in one of their chairs.

4.  If they answer “No,” they continue with, “But, I love everyone who… __________” (i.e. …has brown eyes). Everyone in the circle with brown eyes finds a new chair.

“Amazingly helpful! A huge gift for someone trying to get a drama club going in a middle school setting. Full of great suggestions and easy to digest format.”

    This is one of my favourites. It can be made harder and even more fun (or chaotic!) by adding in a new rule after a few rounds – when a chair to your left becomes empty, you have to move into it. It’s hilarious to watch and to play!
