How to Play. To start the game, you give the children a command, e.g.: 'Who's ten years old, change your flats!' Each player, who is ten, stands up and takes the next free seat counterwise. Your following commands might be like these: 'Who's got a dog, change your flats!', 'Who can play basketball, change your flats!' and so on. There is no winner in this game, but its effectiveness as an 'icebreaker' is great!
