London Bridge Activity


This London Bridge activity is best played out with three or more participants.

The idea is for two participants to be either side of London Bridge and the other players to pass through the bridge.

Start with two players facing each other with hands joined and arms raised in an arch.

The other players go under the arms as the rhyme is recited.



London Bridge is falling down,
(players hold their joined arms up high, other players pass underneath the bridge)

Falling down, falling down.
(players hold their joined arms up high, other players pass underneath the bridge)

London Bridge is falling down,
(players hold their joined arms up high, other players pass underneath the bridge)

My fair lady!
(players being the bridge bring their joined arms together down low - if they trap a passerby all the better for grins and giggles)


Build it up with iron bars,
(caught player stands aside and other players continue as the sides of the bridge go up again)

Iron bars, Iron bars,
(players hold their joined arms up high, other players pass underneath the bridge)

Build it up with iron bars,

My fair lady.


Here's a prisoner I have got,
(players being the bridge bring their joined arms together down low - if they trap a passerby all the better for grins and giggles)

I have got, I have got,

Here's a prisoner I have got,

My fair lady.
