Thread Name: Folklore: Children's games
Subject: Folklore: Children's games
A recent post on Facebook diverged into a discussion on children's games and songs, creating quite a lot of interest amongst a few people. In consequence, I am re-reading some of the Peter and iona Opie books and, as always, getting deeply immersed and fascinated by it to the extent that I am inspired to do a suevey of my own. Obviously one needs to talk to children, but for a start....whatgames, rhymes and songs do you remember from your childhood, your children's childhoods or your pupils if you are a teacher? The first topic is counting out or "dipping". What did you call it and what rhymes did you use?
