Who Has Got My Lepechaun
Tune: This Old Man
Who has got my Leprechaun?
Number 1, number
2, number 3 it must be YOU!
Take this shamrock now please do.
(you might want to fix the last line if you can think of a better idea...)
Game: Similar to Lucy Locket - students sit in a circle, one child carries a paper shamrock (or you could use
a pot of gold, rainbow, etc.) around the circle. When the song gets to "Number 1, number 2, number 3 it must be you",
the child points to the next 3 children as he/she walks behind them. The "number 3" child is now "it" and the old "shamrock
carrier" sits in the circle.
Variation 1: The former "shamrock carrier" joins onto the new carrier (like a train) - continue until all children are
on the train
Variation 2: Play ala "Duck Duck Goose" - after the "shamrock carrier" taps the third child, they race in opposite directions
around the circle. Whoever is last getting back to the original spot is now "it".
