Candace sent me this rhyme with a note, "…a rhyme my mother told me as a child; it had motions…"

Notes

Kristy wrote: "We are in our 60's now, but when we were children our parents played a slight variation on this song...

Round ball, round ball,
Pull the little hair (same-as your version)
Chug, chug, chug, chug,
Tickle under there!

Parent made a walking motion with their 1st two fingers up to the armpit."

Game Instructions

1. Move your finger in a small circle on the child's palm.
2. Tug lightly at bangs or hair.
3. Move your finger in a small circle on the child's palm.
4. Make a chopping motion with your hand halfway up the
child's forearm, and then at the elbow.
5. At "tickle under there," tickle the child's underarms.
