    Bear and the honeypot:
    Children sit in circle, one chosen to sit in the middle and be Mr Bear. Children chant "Isn't it funny how a bear likes honey. I wonder why he does? Go to sleep Mr bear." Child in middle closes eyes whilst adult hides 'honey pot' behind another child's back. Children in circle all hide their hands behind their backs and then chant "Wakey, wakey Mr Bear! Someone's stolen your honey pot!" Child in middle opens eyes and then has to guess who has honey pot behind their back. They go round circle asking each child "Have you stolen my honey pot?" If no, child shows hands and says "No Mr Bear." If they have honey pot behind their back they show it and become the next Mr Bear.
    Apple Pie:
    One child is chosen to be the guesser. They stand away from the group and turn their back to the group. A child in the group is chosen without the guesser's knowledge. That child says "apple pie" in a funny voice. The guesser has to guess which child spoke.
