What you need: A path of up to 20 numbered squares, music to play during the game and prizes (typically a cake, but other treats or items can also serve as the prize).

How to play: When the music starts playing, children walk around the path, stepping on one numbered square at a time. When the music stops, everyone must stop walking, and a number is called out. Whoever is standing on that number wins the prize.

The rules: Winning numbers should be drawn out of a hat or fishbowl for the sake of fairness.

How to win: Be the person standing on the square of the number that is called out.

What else you need to know: This is a great game for school fundraisers -- sell tickets to participants.
