Organization:

Instructions:

1. Donkey's favorite thing to do is sing, but what happens when the music stops? All of the players will be a donkey and have a ball at their foot. As the music is playing players must dribble around and avoid going in between any of the 1x1 yd boxes in the grid.

2. Once the music stops players must quickly find a box to enter before the big grumpy Shrek takes their music box away (ball). Only one player may be in a box at a time though. If two players are in the same box they both automatically loose their music box, but may continue to play without a ball for that round.

3. As the game continues Shrek (coach) will start to remove some of the boxes and make it harder for donkey to protect his/her music box.
