Count to ten and back to one again with a playful underwater game of follow the leader! One fish with a red flag is joined one at a time by other sea swimmers for a lively adventure. As we arrive at ten, our leader comes across a tasty snack and without thinking, gulp! Too late, he realizes his mistake! Now it is a game of swallow the leader. Each fish in turn swallows the one in front of him… and we count back down to one. But never fear, the last gulp was too much, and burrrp! The group is all back and ready for another game!
