Game Instructions

The children sit in a circle. The leader (who's chosen in advance) is placed in a spot where he can be seen by all the players. Each player chooses a musical instrument to pretend to play when the leader points to him. If he fails (because he didn't notice that he was pointed to), he gets a penalty that was decided on before the game started.
