Around the maypole

Create your own maypole using long, wide strips of crêpe paper, ribbon or strips of fabric tied around a tree or wooden, metal or plastic post pushed firmly into the ground. With a small group of children each holding one of the lengths, make a circle and walk around the tree singing ‘Here we go round the damson tree/wooden post/metal pole’ to the tune of ‘Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush’. End the song with ‘on a beautiful May morning/afternoon’.
