One elephant went balancing

For this song you will need a piece of string/rope and group of children.

[One child walking on the piece of string]

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along:

One elephant went balancing
Step by step on a piece of string
He/she found it such tremendous fun
That he called for another elephant to come

[Another child joins the first child and holds on to his/her shoulder]

Two elephants went balancing …

[Another child joins the children and holds on to the second child’s shoulder]

Three…

Four …

Five elephants went balancing
Step by step on a piece of string
They found it such tremendous fun
But the string went SNAP [clap]
And they all fell down
