This game, which is a combination of Snap! and musical chairs, has no more purpose then being sheer fun!
Table and chairs placed ready for playing cards.
Divide the girls into groups of no more than ten per group.
Place a line of spoons with one less than the number of girls in the group on a table.
Deal out three cards to each girl and leave the rest in the middle face down.
Next the girls take turns going around the table, each time picking up a card. They can keep or discard the card but must ensure that they only ever are holding three cards. The unwanted card is placed face down in the middle of the table.
As soon as one girl has three of the same suit or number (e.g. 3-three sixes, three jacks) she picks up a spoon.
The other girls attempt to pick up the remaining spoons as quickly as they can. Whoever is left without a spoon is out of the game.
The deck gets reshuffled and re-dealt. One more spoon is removed and the game continues until there are no spoons left.
