Acting and Dramatic Games Leaves Are Green

( Acting and Dramatic, Choreographed, Dancing, Singing and Song )

This is a game for small children. The players join hands and form a ring. They dance around in a circle in time to the music singing to the air of “Mulberry bush” —

The leaves are green the nuts are brown
They hang so high they will not come down
Leave them alone till frosty weather
Then they will all come down together.

As the last words are sung the children all stoop suddenly to the ground to represent the falling nuts. This is more interesting if the time be rapid and if the players jump before stooping which may lead to their tumbling over as the nuts do when they fall from the trees.
