GAME

Children sit in circle, with hands and eyes closed: one takes the ring/stick, walking around tapping the closed hands of the players while singing the first line of the song.

While singing: "I go to Kingston," player places ring/stick in another student's hand, that student sings, "come back again." Students guess who has the ring. The correct student becomes the next player.
