Play the "Paw Paw Patch" game

Copy Link
Song Used: Paw Paw Patch

Play the "Paw Paw Patch" game

Form two lines facing each other, with group A in one line and group B in another.

Verse 1: The person at the head of group A skips around behind their line, around group B's line, and back into place.
Verse 2: The person at the head of group A leads the whole group B line around group A's line, and back into B's places.
Verse 3: The two lines peel the orange, with the head couple forming an arch at the bottom. To “peel the orange” the two line leaders will go around their lines in different directions. One will lead his line to the left, and the other will lead her line to the right. All go through the arch.

Game repeats with the new head couple. Traditionally this game was played with group A being the girls and group B
being the boys, but we suggest that you allow students to partner with whoever they'd like. Change the words of verse 2 to "Come on kids" instead of "Come on boys." Change the words "Pretty Little Ellie" to my friend ______ substituting the name of the child who is the leader.

Game Directions: Have all the students line up on one side of the room. Choose a “king” to stand at the other end of the room. These students in the line will “trespass” on the king’s land by coming closer and closer to the king as they sing the song. At the
end of the song, the king gives chase and tries to tag the students before they reach the end of the room again. If they are tagged, they join the king and try to tag the students that are left.
