Thread Name: Folklore: Do kids still do clapping rhymes?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Do kids still do clapping rhymes?
I'm from a small town in Australia, The kids here at the local primary school still do them but as time has gone on they have got progressivly ruder.
My five younger sisters and three younger brothers LOVE playing hand clapping games. Even at school! The kids still play elastics here too! The chants they sing playing elastics is "England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Inside, Outside, Inside, ON... Then they have to jump on both sides of the elastics. I am 18 and i still enjoy playing these games with my younger siblings and my neices and nephews. Learning the new chants is always fun! I'm one of 12 (HUGE family) and all 12 of us have had fun with clapping games.
