Learn the game for “Draw a Bucket of Water”

Copy Link
Song Used: Draw a Bucket of Water

Learn the game for “Draw a Bucket of Water”

Players 1 and 2 join hands. Players 3 and 4 join hands above Player 1 and 2’s hands. All hands remain joined throughout the song. All rock back and forth as they sing. On the words “number one pops under” Player 1 ducks underneath the hands of Players 3 and 4. On the next verse Player 2 also pops under. Players 3 and 4 follow in verses three and four. In verse five everybody is huddled together and hops around in a circle. At the end of verse five everyone lets hands go and they burst free.

If the actual singing game is too difficult for your kindergarten students, have each child choose a partner and see-saw back and forth as they sing.

Another simpler game alternative would be to play the game with a stretchy band. Designate students as numbers 1-2- 3-4-5. At the end of the song only those students who are number five will still be holding the band. All the others will be in the center.
