Dutch Shoe Game
(source: "Musical Fun With The Brownie Pack", Girl Guides Association, 1986; also in "Jubilee Songbook", Girl Guides of Canada, 1971.)

You must pass this shoe from me to you, to you,
You must pass this shoe and do just what I do.


Girls sit in a circle; everyone needs to have a shoe in front of them. Each girl takes their shoe in their right hand and passes it to the right in rhythm (on each of the bolded, italicized words). On the first "do", everyone keeps the shoe they have and taps it on the floor to their right. On "what", the same shoe is tapped on the floor to the left. On the second "do", everyone passes their shoe to their right-hand neighbour.

Repeat a number of times, getting faster and faster!
