A tisket, A tasket (Instructions): Words and Music Traditional
Circle Game: The game starts with one person on the outside of the circle, holding an item that stands for the "letter" (i.e. scarf/beanbag). This person walks around the circle while the others sing the song. When they get to the last words ("lost it".) “It” drops the object behind the person they are next to and runs! This person picks up the object and tries to catch the "It" with it. If the "It" makes it to the empty space and successfully sits, the person who was chasing them is now the new “It”. If the "catcher" tags the "dropper" before he/she sits, the "dropper" is in and they sit in the middle of the circle until someone else is caught.
