    Game: Find something that makes a noise that sounds like a tick tock of a clock. Have one or two people (either children or adults) play the beat with the instrument while making the tick tock noise with their tongue. The others sing the song twice. Then switch parts. See how many things in the house can sounds like a clock.

    Game: sing the song while passing a penny from hand to hand, when the song ends sneakily put the penny in one hand and have the other person guess.

    • I Spy with my Little Eye 

    Game: The game is just like the original game, but they sing the words

    Game: take something wallet shaped (or a wallet) and while nobody is looking, hide it in the room. Someone then opens their eyes and goes looking for the wallet, sing louder as they get closer and quieter as they get further away (like hot and cold) 

    Game: If you have a few people in the house, make a seated circle. Echo the words while walking around the circle (as if playing duck duck goose) and at the end of the song, tap someone’s head and run around the circle while the other chases, trying to get to their spot.

    • Mabel Mabel

    Game: Make a seated circle, and pick a type of food (vegetables, snacks, etc) and chant “Mabel Mabel, set the table, don’t forget the _______” each person goes around filling in the blank with something. It gets faster as it goes, if you can’t think of a word, or you repeat something someone else said, you’re out! Continue till one person is left.
