In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the group in a circle. Ask who knows the song, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star?" How about the song, "Baa Baa Black Sheep," or the alphabet song ("ABCD, ... LMNOP...")? Allow some demonstrations.
Ask the group if they notice what all three songs have in common. Point out that all the songs share the same tune.
Invite the group to pass all three songs around the circle, using these rules:
This can become exceedingly difficult. You may want to start with only two of the songs. Or, simplify the game by taking turns only after a full measure of one song has been completed. For example: "ABCDEFG, Yes Sir, yes Sir, three bags full, Up above the world so high..." In the more complex version, you may end up with measures such as "AB, black sheep, little star" and "Twinkle, CD, Have you any wool?"
