Five Little Indians

You may use this activity if your doing a Thanksgiving or Indian theme!

Five little Indians,

In a teepee,

Sleeping quietly

As can be.


Along came the chief,

And what do you think?  (Clap!)

Up jumped the Indians,

Quick as a wink!


Use a long rope to make a teepee.  Five children can lie inside of it at a time.  The chief walks over with his headdress on and hands folded in front of him.

When the chief comes and the song has the “clap,” the Indians inside of the teepee jump up!

You can use this several times to allow 5 children at a time to leave the second circle.
