Subject: RE: Child's Game: Elastics
Here in Shropshire in the 50s and 60s it was definitely called French skipping. It was just as popular as cat's cradle, British Bulldog, one ball, two ball, three ball (etc), puss in the corner, tick off ground, bluebells of Scotland, Farmers in his den and that old favourite - push the smallest kid in the school pond then run off before Mrs Bray turns up.
