Energizer Game - Another Energizer You Can Play

Musical Arms:

This game is a variation of Musical Chairs. It is an energizer. It can be played with a group of twenty or over. Call out for five to 10 volunteers.

If the group is twenty or less call out for five volunteers. You can have more number of volunteers if the group size is thirty or above. Do not have more than ten volunteers.

Ask the volunteers to stand in a vertical line with the first person facing the front of the room. There should be an arms length between any two people in the line. Ask the first volunteer to stand with his right arm on the hip, the second volunteer with his left arm on the hip and so on.

Play some music. As the music is playing, the rest of the participants will circle this line of volunteers. As soon as the music stops, the circling participants are expected to find a person to hook their arms into.

Whoever does not find a partner, is out of the game. When there are only a few people left - as many participants as there are are volunteers, the volunteers are asked to leave the line and join the participants in the game.

By the end of the game, the winner - the one who finds a partner - is given an applause as the winner of Musical Arms.
