Watch the kids in the video play the game "How Many Fingers?"

In-person - space out and play the game.
- if you can't sing, use the recording

Zoom:
- choose a guesser who hides his/her eyes. (Keeps them closed)
- choose a person to hold up 1-5 fingers.
- sing the song
- the guesser guesses how many fingers the volunteer held up

You could add to the challenge, by having the volunteer sing the last line of the song alone. The guesser would have to guess a) who sang and b) how many fingers were held up. I would give the guesser 3 guesses.
