Now when the children were running they were caught by the monster and those who caught were also becoming monster. The last remaining child not getting caught is the winner of the game. The children were very much happy while playing this game and were constantly laughing.

Everyone loves music and games together and your kid will surely love to play with his friends the “Musical statues game” on his birthday party. In this game when the music is on the children dance and they have to stand still like a statue when the music stops.
