Look up the song, great to teach to the young and old. Originally from Africa the translation means “The rock has crushed my hand Grandma, The rock has crushed my hand”. I usually sing it, make up a story about it to tell the kids about a rock crushing the boys hand, then We all sing it. After that I add drums usually using the rhythm Ta Ta Ta TeeTee. It goes for 8 measures. You can switch up the beat if you would like, as long as it fits it’s alright. We play drums then we sing again, then we play and sing. This activity can usually last 30-40 minutes depending on the age.
