Kids driving you a little nuts already this summer? Maybe the idea of a road trip send shivers down your spine because your angels mysteriously turn into something else about 2 blocks from your house? Here's a no-materials, no-mess game that I used to have my students play while they waited in line. It's in a similar vein to "The Silent Game" except the kids are supposed to be as still as statues. That's it. You, or one of your kids is designated "Statue Master" and gives the rest of the crew a 5-4-3-2-1 countdown (during which time the "statues" get all of their wiggles out). Once they hear "1", though, they have to freeze and be perfectly still. The Statue Master observes and eliminates anybody who moves. Simple? Yes. A great way to get your kids to stop fighting or calm down or do whatever it is you need them to do? Yes! Enjoy, fellow Statue Masters!
