This is really a rhythm game. First you have to have a bunch of cups, plastic are best, and give one to each youth. Have them sit in a circle on the ground, and put their cups in front of them with their hands on it. This is how the rhythm goes: la de dah, la de dah, la de dah de dah de dah, and then from the beginning again. The youth group goes, “la de dah”, and while they are saying this, they pass their cups to the person to their left. Then, “la de dah” again, and again they pass the cup they have to the person on their left. Then, they say, “la de dah de dah de dah”. When they are saying the first 3 syllables, they put their cup like they are giving it to the person on their left. But they keep their hand on it, and say “de dah” and put it back in front of them. Then they say “de dah” again and put the cup back in front of the person to their left. Then they repeat the whole thing again. It’s a lot simpler than it sounds, and the kids love it. One more time, the rhythm: la de dah, lah de dah, la de dah de dah de dah. Have fun!
