Who Has the Ring


Can you guess who has the ring
As we pass it on the string?
Pass it left, pass it right,
Always keep it out of sight.


Formation: Thread a ring through a long string and tie the ends of the string together. Students stand in a circle holding a the string with both hands. One person (“It”) stands in the middle of the circle.

As the song is sung, students pass the ring from one person to another while “It” tries to figure out who has the ring. (All students pretend to pass the ring, whether they have it or not.) At the end of the song, stop passing. “It” guesses who has the ring. If correct, the student with the ring becomes the new “It.” If incorrect, “It” has two more guesses before the song resumes.
