Children's songs in triple metre?

I am no musician at all, but I'm trying to collect together a few children's songs and nursery rhymes that are in triple metre (I had to google and consult wikipedia to find out the correct term!).

Why?, you might ask... Well, I live in Spain and take ds along to a music class here, all in Spanish of course. They do some fun clapping games and movements to some triple metre Spanish songs, and I want to copy the movements and do them at home with ds in English.

So, any pointers?

Half a pound of tuppeny rice (it's actually in 6/8 time, but that break down into two lots of three, if that makes sense to you!)
