Pre-Opening Activity

Holiday Name That Tune


As families arrive, invite them to play this game. On a tape recorder, record a few bars of several pieces of music associated with Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa. Include some difficult selections as well as old favorites and children's songs. Tell them to write down titles of the tunes they recognize. During the pack meeting, ask everyone to stand. Ask those who identified fewer than five selections on the taped music to sit down. Then ask those who got fewer than six, seven, eight, etc., to sit down until only one or two families are standing. In their honor, have your song leader lead the audience in the most familiar number of the tape.
