Ali Baba

Leader says "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,"  rhythmically, four times. Each time, the leader moves on the beat -- any move that will work on a beat is acceptable, as long as it is appropriate (no rude gestures, no hitting oneself!). The leader must change to a new movement every time he or she says "Ali " Everyone else copies, in a round, so they are doing the leader's first move when the leader has moved on to the second, etc.

Lions and Tigers

This game has the same rules as "Ali Baba," except that everyone says "Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh, My!" and moves with a triple feeling, rather than duple.
