GAME--COME INSIDE THE GIANT'S HOUSE.

THIS GAME IS PLAYED BY YOUNG CHILDREN
IN GROUPS. IT STARTS OFF AS AN ADULT
BEING THE GIANT. THE GROUPS ARE BROKE
APART INTO 3 OR 4 GROUPS (USUALLY 4
IN A GROUP). THE GROUPS BEGIN TO
CHANT "COME INSIDE THE GIANT'S HOUSE,
COME INSIDE THE GIANT'S HOUSE TO SEE
WHAT YOU CAN SEE." AFTER THIS CHANT THE
GIANT SAYS, I SEE A CHAIR (OR OTHER TYPE
OF OBJECT). THE CHILDREN MAKE THIS AND
THE GROUPS TRY TO MAKE THIS.

Submitter comment: IT IS A GAME CHILDREN PLAY. THEY HAVE TO MAKE THE OBJECT
USING THEIR BODIES ONLY.

SONG

IN THE LAND OF ODEN
THERE IS A MOUNTAIN
WHICH IS TWENTY MILLION
MILES IN THE AIR.
AND EVERY MILLION YEARS
A LITTLE BIRD COMES A WINGING
TO SHARPEN HIS BEAK ON THAT MOUNTAIN;
THEN HE QUICKLY DISAPPEARS.
AND WHEN THAT MOUNTAIN
HAS WORN AWAY
THAT'S WHEN ETERNITY WILL BE
ONE SINGLE DAY
ONE SINGLE DAY
ONE SINGLE DAY.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; LAPEER ; CAMP O'FAIRWINDS
