This name game is great for use with younger participants. Start by getting the group into a circle for this game. If the participants already know each other’s names and you are using this as a warm up/reminder then you can begin right away. If the group names are not yet automatic be sure to model asking another participant for their name before including it into the song.
Teach them this song using one of their names as an example.
