You’re Extinct!


Things You’ll Need:

Large box, an appliance sized box is best
A radio
Paint and markers to decorate the box


Getting Ready:

Step 1:  Cut the ends of the box open, and tape or glue the flaps to the top of the box.

Step 2:  Decorate the box to look like a cave.  You can paint it a solid color, glue on pictures of dinosaurs, draw pictures of plants, whatever strikes your fancy.  Have the birthday child help you a few days before the party.

Step 3:  Set the radio up close by.


When the guests arrive:

Step 1:  Have the guest line up at the front of the cave. 

Step 2:  Start the music, and have the first child go through the cave and out the other side.

Step 3:  Have the next child follow.  Continue, having each child go through.

Step 4:  When the music stops, any child still in the cave is “extinct.”

Step 5:  The last guest who isn’t extinct is the winner.
