Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

Group sits in a circle and chants “Ali Baba and the 40 thieves,” while doing one action all together – repeat three times. On the next chant, the group leader changes the action and then on the next chant, the person beside him/her does that action. The action follows its way around the circle and the whole time the group is repeating the phrase. The group leader must change the action after every beat, so that every person in the circle eventually ends up doing a different action.
