Summer Game - Hot potato, hot potato, you're out!


Hi! We heard you were going to have a barbecue party this weekend! 😊

What’s a barbecue party without some fun music and games!

So, as part of our English activities that you can do this summer, here’s a song that you can sing, dance and play to.










Here’s the lyrics to the song…


Hot potato, hot potato (hot potato, hot potato)

Hot potato, hot potato (hot potato, hot potato)

Hot potato, hot potato (potato), potato (potato)

Potato, potato, potato

Cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti (cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti)

Cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti (cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti)

Cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti (spaghetti), spaghetti (spaghetti)

spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Gimme that, gimme that, gimme that, hoo

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Gimme that, gimme that

Mashed banana, mashed banana (mashed banana, mashed banana)

Mashed banana, mashed banana (mashed banana, mashed banana)

Mashed banana, mashed banana (banana), banana (banana)

Banana, banana, banana

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Gimme that, gimme that, gimme that, hoo

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Whooo, wiggy wiggy wiggy

Gimme that, gimme that

Hot potato, hot potato (hot potato, hot potato)

Hot potato, hot potato (hot potato, hot potato)

Hot potato, hot potato (potato), potato (potato)

Potato, potato, potato

Whoo



Did you have fun singing and dancing to the song? Cool!

Now, let’s play the game!

Form a circle with your kids and whoever wants to play the game. You can either do the actions of the song or pass on something of your choice (a ball, a doll, etc…)

Sing the song and choose which part to stop, if you’re doing the actions, the last person to stop moving will be out. If you’re passing something the last person to get it is out. Until there’s only one winner left!


This game would help the young ones learn new vocabulary or maybe tap the ones they already know without the feel of actually practicing English on their holiday. Also, who doesn’t enjoy a fun time with a catchy song and good food! 😊



Have a great time!



Love,
