This is the classic game of musical chairs with a little fruit added.
You Will Need
* Fruit names assigned to each participant
Choose a person to start and stop the music throughout the game.
Set up the chairs in a circle. Have each participant sit in a chair.
Divide the participants into groups of two or three and assign the name of a fruit, such as pears, bananas, or cherries, to each group.
Play the music and call out a fruit group. Members of that group get up and walk around the chairs. Remove one of their chairs.
Stop the music. The participants must find an empty seat and the person without a seat is eliminated.
Have the eliminated person help with the music or call out the next fruit.
Continue the same process until all the fruit groups are called.
Call out "upset the fruit basket" and everyone has to get up and walk around the circle. Remove a chair.
Continue playing until there is one participant in the last chair. They are the last fruit in the basket and win the game.
Fact: There are 1,000 different varieties of bananas.
