Games to Play Outside (Or In) FUN!!!

Singing games are so much fun and there are so many fun games that work inside as well as out!
Here are a few of my favorite:

One, Two, Three O'Leary/One, Two, Three a Learie

This song is often cited as Irish, although it was first collected in California as an Anglo-American playground game, see Sail Away book, page 24.
There are several versions and ways to play.  My favorite way to play is version 2 (see songs below) and can be found here:
 Here is a different view:

Hope you enjoy all of these and get outside (or stay in and have some fun)!


  1. Love these! I'm thinking of trying the O'Leary game next week. Question: Does the first person in the line ever get a chance to move to another spot in the line? How do you facilitate that?

    1. After every couple of turns I have the person in the front move to the back and everyone shifts up.

    2. Awesome! I thought that might be the case. :-) I ended up having the kids come up with creative ways to shift things around. Thank you so much!
