Pass the Chicken

All you need to play this game is a rubber chicken. Have all the players stand in a tight circle, facing inwards, close enough to each other that their shoulders are touching. Elect one player be the Detective. The Detective stands in the centre of the circle with their eyes closed. Everyone sings the "Chicken Dance" while the rubber chicken is passed around behind the backs of the players in the circle. Eventually the Detective yells "STOP!", at which point everyone stops singing and freezes in place. The Detective then has three chances to guess who has the chicken. If she guesses correctly, then the person caught with the chicken moves into the circle to take the Detective's place and the game starts again.

To make the game more challenging for older girls, you can continue to pass the chicken around the circle behind the players' backs while the Detective is trying to decide where it is.
