How to Play: Hot Potato
How to play: The kids get in a circle, and the music starts. As the music plays, players must pass the "hot potato" around. The player caught holding the "hot potato" when the music stops is out, and the game begins again.
The rules: Players must pass the "hot potato" in consecutive order -- no one can be skipped.
How to win: Be the last person left.
What else you need to know: This game can be played without music, but there needs to be a designated leader to call out "HOT!" to stop the passing of the "hot potato."
