A den from our pack did this recently with a little variation: use a
local major high tech employer like Intel instead of the button factory.
The worker's job is to turn a crank or push a button. Have the audience
participate by mirroring the leader's motions. Verse
one starts with left hand twisting. The next verses progress through
right hand, left foot, right foot, nod your head while adding the new
motions to what you are already doing. The last task is to stick out
your tongue while twisting, nodding and repeating the words and finally
saying NO! Pretty fun!
