Shoulders, knees, CUP! Students try to be the first one to grab the cup after listening to a series of commands. Have them break in to pairs facing a cup, then shout Head, Toes, Elbows, Toes, Ears, Hair (really anything will work) and then CUP! The first person to grab the cup moves on, finds a new partner, and the losers sit down. Last person standing wins!
