Who Stole My Chickens And My Hens

This game is SO MUCH FUN! Kids love learning it - there can be a fair bit of hilarity until the actions are learned well. Then it all comes together quite naturally! Might work best to teach the actions one verse at a time!

Also great for preparing and practising:

  • the rhythmic element 'tim-ka'.
  • the melodic element 'fa'.
