Each cracker contains
a numbered whistle
Sitting the whole family down for Christmas dinner together is usually the cue for squabbles, food flinging and general discord. But now there’s a way to bring a little order to proceedings and get the whole family working in harmony. Well... possibly.
Concerto Musical Crackers
are great fun for any group around a dinner table. Every cracker contains a whistle
and a numbered badge
to wear. And each of the 8 whistles plays a slightly different note. The table must decide who is to be the official Conductor and that person is given the baton and music sheet (included). Coat tails are optional.
Play a festivel tune round
the dinner table
It is then up to the conductor
to create beautiful music, pointing to each whistler as their number appears on the music sheet
. What should ensue is a delightful rendition of a classic and well known Christmas tune. What usually ensues is a complete mess, random toots from everyone involved and much giggling.
To make matters even trickier, all 8 whistles are involved. So if there are less than 8 people around the table, some may need to operate more than one whistle – which can be challenging after a couple of sherries. As you can imagine, the result isn’t quite philharmonic standard, but it is remarkably good fun and can be enjoyed by the whole family. Next stop, Wembley!
