Punchinello

Activity for a group of children

Age group: 30-40 months

Try this "Monkey see, monkey do" activity the next time you have a bunch of young, restless children to entertain.

  1. Have children form a circle. Ask one child to stand in the center as the leader, Punchinello.
  2. The children in the circle sing the following song:

    What can you do, Punchinello, funny fellow, funny fellow?
    What can you do, Punchinello, funny fellow, funny you?
  3. The child in the center makes a movement. All the others imitate him while they sing:

    We can do it too Punchinello, funny fellow, funny fellow.
    We can do it too, funny fellow, funny you.
  4. The child in the middle picks a new Punchinello. Continue until everyone has had a turn.
