Round and Round the Village

For this game, use a parachute or very big stretchy band. Stand in a circle, make sure everyone has a handle to hold. As you sing, go around and around. When you “go in and […]

Itsy Bitsy Spider

I Love My Rooster

This song is a great memory game, each new verse you add a animal (and the sound it makes) and then finish the verse by listing every animal from previous verses. Props like plastic animals […]
