How to play

  1. Put some music on and choose 1 person to pretend to be Maui.

  2. Maui starts by calling out the name of an animal. Everyone must then start moving like that animal.

  3. Keep moving until Maui shouts "hook!". Then everyone must freeze in the position of a hook.

  4. The last person to form a hook shape is out. Maui starts the game again by shouting out a new animal.

  5. Keep going – when there's only 1 person left, they become Maui.
