Humpitty, Lumpitty - a Game from Australia

One girl is the mother kangaroo, and stands at one end of the room. Everyone else starts from the other end, and creeps towards the mother kangaroo saying "Humpitty, Lumpitty, hop and go one, What are you doing out there in the sun?". If the mother kangaroo says an action such as walking, hopping or skipping, they go back to the beginning doing that action. If she says running, the mother kangaroo chases them. Anyone caught before they get back to the end of the room becomes a baby kangaroo and helps with the catching.
