Everyone stands in a circle. One person, the "bear" goes in the middle pretending to sleep. The kids go around the "bear" in a circle while singing this song. On the last word the "bear" jumps up and the kids scatter. The "bear" tags one of the kids. That person will be the "bear" in the next round of the game.
