Song Games to Sing & Play

Closet Key

Member Exclusive Content

Instructions Below

Players form a ring with hands behind them. Verses 1 – 2: One player (“It”) with a key walks around the outside of the ring and places the key in someone’s hands, while leading the singing. “It” rejoins the circle and the player with the key becomes the new “It.”
Variation 1: There is a person in the middle of the circle, and the teacher – or a designated student – puts the key in someone’s hands. The person in the middle of the circle has three chances to guess who has the key.
Variation 2: Student in the middle closes eyes. Teacher puts key in someone’s hands. That child sings “I have found the closet key…” The student in the middle must guess by listening which child sang.
