running.hare Folklore: Do kids still do clapping rhymes? (151* d) RE: BS: Do kid still do clapping rhymes? 21 Sep 03

I've also known boys enjoy clapping games.... In the privacy of their own homes, but they are basicly considered Girly ocupations.
My Guides (11-14) Love Skipping on a long rope in the hall, but proberbly woudn't take a rope in to school for fear of looking uncool, not to mention the weight of the thing!
A favorate in my early years of midde school was 'eastics' the elastic when not in use fitted in a pocket but involved 3+ girls in the game. our usualryme for this was "England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Inside, outside, inside out. Twisties, [and then whichever position she (or one of her companions) nominated to land on]" The chalenge was then to jump out of the twisted elastic & land in the possition you had nominated, either inside the elastyics, outside the elastics, stradling the elastics, or even right on top of both elastics!!!
