Ring Around the Rosie:
What you’ll need:
At least 3 people, but more people make for more fun.
The group recites the following verse while skipping, hopping, walking, or just being goofy in one circular direction:
Ring around the rosy,
A pocketful of posies.
We all fall down!
At the end of the last line of the song, do just that!
It’s Raining, It’s Pouring:
April can have such unpredictable weather, so this song is perfect for when it’s rainy outside. There’s a reason why “April showers bring May flowers” is a popular saying!
It’s raining, it’s pouring,
The old man is snoring!
He went to bed,
And bumped his head!
And couldn’t get up in the morning!
Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And doesn’t know where to find them!
Leave them alone,
And they’ll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.
Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating!
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were still a-fleeting.
Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them!
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For they’d left their tails behind them.
It happened one day, as Bo-Peep did stray,
Into a meadow hard by,
There she espied their tails side by side,
All hung on a tree to dry.
She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye,
And over the hillocks went rambling,
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should,
To tack each again to its lambkin!
