What you need: You need a chocolate bar, sheets of paper, and music.

How to play: Before the game, take the chocolate bar and wrap it in a layer of paper. On the paper, write a task to complete. Tasks can be sing a song, eat a teaspoon of mustard, hop on one foot, walk across the room blindfolded, etc. Add another layer of paper and write another task. Repeat this until you have 10 layers of paper wrapped around the chocolate bar. Wrap it in wrapping paper so it looks like a gift. To begin the game, have all players sit in a circle.

The rules: When the music starts, have players pass the gift clockwise around the circle. Pause the music, and whoever has the gift removes the first layer of wrapping paper and must perform the task written on the next layer. Repeat until the last layer of wrapping is removed.

How to win: Whoever unwraps the last layer is the winner and gets the chocolate bar.

What else you need to know: You can substitute any other prize for the chocolate bar.
