London Bridge is falling down

London bridge is a really fun children's party game. I remember playing it a lot as a kid and I had a lot of fun.

Even dough it's a children's game, adults can have a lot of fun playing it as well... especially after a few drinks:)

How to play

Two kids for a bridge by standing opposite of each other and holding hands above their head.

The rest of the kids form a circle that begins and ends at "the bridge". Everyone starts walking and passing under "the bridge". As they circle around they also have to sing:

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down,
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair Lady.

When the song ends, the bridge falls down... the two kids drop their arms and catch one of the kids. Whoever gets caught is eliminated and the game continues. The last one left is the winner.

You can also play that whoever is caught replaces one of the bridge kids. This way the game continues for as long as you want.
