Hot Potato

A.K.A. Wonder Ball

Everybody stands in a circle

Pass a beanbag around circle to music

When music stops person holding beanbag is out

Pretend the beanbag is a very very very HOT POTATO

[This version was played in New England]


The wonder ball, goes round and round

To pass it quickly, you are bound

If you're the one, to hold it last

The game is past, and you are out!

Variation: add on another line of verse by spelling the word "out"

(e.g., O-U-T, out!)
