TEACHING TIPS: In this variation of the Lucy Locket game, students sit in a circle and tap each person on the head (as in duck duck goose). At the end of the song (“only ribbon round IT”) the duck-er drops the pocket as they tap the last person, and that person picks up the pocket and fast walks (not runs) back to the open spot. The person who gets there first is the winner. Some teachers had the winner play a second time, some teachers had the duck-er sit in the middle (the pot) if they lost. The words are “Lucy locket lost her pocket/Kitty Fisher found it/Not a penny was there in it/Only ribbon round it.”
