Punchinello

This is an old favorite children's circle game.

What can you do
Punchinello, funny fellow,
What can you do
Punchinello from the zoo?

We can do it too,
Punchinello, funny fellow,
We can do it too,
Punchinello from the zoo?

Who do you choose,
Punchinello, funny fellow,
Who do you choose,
Punchinello from the zoo?

Children form a circle. One child, "Punchinello", stands in the middle and performs an action.



The children in the circle all imitate the action




The child in the middle chooses someone from the circle to take his or her place, and the game restarts.
