This game is set up like musical chairs with four or more chairs set up
as a square. All the children sit on the floor inside the square
while one child stands in the centre. He or she is the "King!"
The King calls out, "I see a colour, and the colour is RED!" Then
any children wearing something with that colour must jump up and run
and find an empty seat. The children left standing are "OUT"
until the next round.
Choose one of these children to be the next King and to stand in the
centre of the square. He or she then chooses another colour, and
calls out "I see a colour, and the colour is GREEN! and so on.
If there are too few children at any stage or for a particular colour,
let the King call out two or more colours at the same time. For
example, "I see the colour, and the colours are WHITE and BLUE!"
To get all the children to participate, let the King call out, "I see a
colour, and the colour is RAINBOW!"
From time to time you can play ordinary musical chairs, where all the
children move around a circle of chairs until the music stops.
