May Day Games

We hang a Maypole from our ceiling using crepe paper streamers. As we walk around the Maypole we sing,

Walking around the Maypole, Walking around the Maypole, Walking Around the Maypole, Going ’round and ’round.

We substitute dance, skip, etc. for “walk”. Believe it or not, when you walk around in a circle the streamers create a “pole”. For added fun, have a teacher stand in the middle and get wrapped in the Maypole. To untangle, simply reverse directions.
