Thread Name: Mimsies, clapsies? Origin?
Subject: RE: Mimsies, clapsies? Origin?
Our version in the ‘50s in Northern Minnesota:
Roll-the-ball (while rolling our hands around each other)
To backsies (touching both shoulders)
Right hand
Left hand
High water (bounce ball high)
Low water (bounce ball low)
Touch your heel
Touch your toe
Touch your knee
And away we go! (Lift leg and bounce the ball under it)
-Repeat the cycle clapping before each move
-Repeat rolling hands before each move
