GOING ON A TIGER HUNT
The “Tigers” enjoyed this echo game to the full.

As they enjoyed it so much, we would like to share it with you so that you can play with your child too.

 

The child must be facing you or, in the case of more than two people playing, sit in a circle.

 

The child must echo every phrase after the adult and copy the motions.  The continuous motion of slapping hands on knees is stopped only when there is another motion to pantomime.

 

TIGER HUNT

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

                (slap hands on knees, alternately

                In rhythm, throughout poem)

We´re going to catch a big one!

What a beautiful day

We´re not afraid!!

                (continue slapping and shake head)

Got my hat, …

Got my lunch, …

Open the door, ….

                (pretend to open door)

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to some tall grass,…

Gotta walk through, …

Swish, swish, swish, swish,…

            (hands and arms part tall grass)

Whew!! We made it!...

(wipe brow, then slap both knees at same time)

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to a big mountain,…

Gotta hike over, ….

Huh, huh, huh, huh…

                (slap knees slowly, tired voice)

Whew!! We mad it!...

(wipe brow, then slap both knees at same time)

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to a roaring river,…

Gotta swim across,…

Splash, splash, splash, splash…

                (swimming motions)

Whew!! We made it!...

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to a muddy swamp,…

Gotta slosh through…

Shlurp, shlurp, shlurp, shlurp,…

                (while lifting hands alternately,

                Droop fingers, close fingers)

Whew!! We made it!...

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to a large lake, …

Gotta row across,…

Swoosh, swoosh…

                (rowing motions)

Whew!! We made it!...

 

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to some monstrous mosquitoes,…

Gotta get through,…

Slap, slap, slap, slap…

                (slap arms)

Whew!! We made it!...

 

Going on a tiger hunt (echo)

We´re not afraid!!

Coming to a dark cave,…

Gotta creep inside,…

Tip-toe, tip-toe…

                (whisper as fingers creep on knees)

 

Look to the left, …

                (shade eyes and look left)

Look to the right, …

                (look right)

Look up,…

                (look up)

Look down,…

                (look down)

I think I see some BIG eyes,…

                (fingers form circles around eyes)

I think it´s a ….TIGER!...

                (throw arms back)

 

Out of the cave,… (slap knees faster)

Through the mosquitoes, … (slap arms)

Across the lake, … (row)

Through the swamp, … (hands up, droop fingers)

Across the river, … (swim)

Over the mountain, … (slap knees quickly)

Through the grass, … (arms part tall grass)

Open the door, … (open door)

Close the door, … (clap)

Whew! We made it! … (wipe brow, slap knees)

 

We went on a tiger hunt…

            (again, slap knees in rhythm)

And we weren´t afraid!!!...

                (throw arms out to sides, shake head)
