Underwater humming

Share this page

Here’s a game for all pop star wannabes.

If you or your children sing into hairbrushes or wave around air guitars while cranking up your waterproof MP3 player, then why not try a little underwater humming.

Firstly, divide into pairs or small groups and stand close to each other. Now all duck under the water. While submerged, one person from the group or pair starts humming a favourite tune and the others have to guess the tune.

How many turns will it take them to name that tune? If they haven’t guessed it after three turns, tell them what it is and then swap. Ensure you have a good collection of humming tunes ready before you start playing.
