Going To Jerusalem

Category: GAMES FOR CHILDREN
A row of chairs, facing alternately different ways, is placed through
the centre of the room--a chair for every player except one.
Some one at the piano plays a lively air, first fast, then slow, very
loud, then low--while the children march around the chairs without
touching them, keeping time with the music. When the music suddenly
stops, all rush for a seat. A chair must be taken away each time the
marching recommences--until but two chairs remain, when the excitement
becomes intense. The one who at the moment that the music ceases has the
good fortune to seat himself or herself in the one chair remaining wins
the game and perhaps a prize.
