Step 1: Sand or sit in a circle Choose a leader. Have everyone else stand or sit in a circle, facing inward. The leader will start and stop the music. Step 2: Give one person the tennis ball Give one person in the circle the tennis ball. The ball will be the "hot potato." Tip You can also play with a small bean bag or an actual potato instead. Step 3: Start the music and start passing around the ball Start the music. The person with the ball quickly tosses it to the person to their right. Step 4: Continue passing ball until the leader ends music Continue tossing the ball quickly to the person on the right until the leader stops the music. The person holding the ball has the "hot potato," and is out of the game. Tip Have the eliminated player switch places with the leader so that the leader can join in the game.
