Mr. Skeleton Where's Your Bones?
To play Mr. Skeleton Where's Your Bone? one child must be Mr. Skeleton and the rest of the kids sit in a circle. Mr. Skeleton is in the middle of the circle. The idea of the game is for Mr. Skeleton to close his eyes and the kids in the circle will pass a cardboard bone behind their backs. When Mr. Skeleton opens his eyes, he or she must try to figure out who has the bone. The person with the bone becomes the next Mr. Skeleton.
While the children are passing along the bone, there's a chant they should sing.
It goes like this:
Mr. Skeleton where's your bone?
Somebody stole it from your home.
Could be him, could be her.
Guess who it is if you can.
Maybe a ghost from Ketchakan.
Now Mr. Skeleton find your bone!
While the kids are chanting Mr. Skeleton's eyes are closed. When they stop he or she can open their eyes, so the bone must be hidden by then.
