Teaching idea & activities
Two children make an arch, face to face with their hands up. The rest of them make a line in front of them, ready to walk under the arch.
They start singing all together while the “line” pass under the arch. At the end of the first verse, the song stops and the two “arch” children catch the child who has stopped under their hands and send them out of the line.
Continue and repeat the same at the end of every verse until all the children have been caught.
