Subject: RE: Child's Game: Elastics
W played "jumpsies" a lot in the seventies. A favourite memory for myself and my sister. Great exercise. I wish the schools would introduce more Playground games. We use to play "two balls" also with rhymes like

Snoopy under
snoopy over
snoopy skyball
snoopy drop

Snoopy under, over, skyball touch

Snoopy front
snoopy back
snoopy side
snoopy touch

Snoopy front, back side touch

Another Fav was

Shirley Temple is a Star, don't forget to drop the R... S.T.A.R

I kinda remember a ball game to where you threw the ball against a wall and had to jump it. There was a rhyme about donkey that went with it.

There was also a rhyme about The Old Lady who lived in a shoe but I can't remember it.

We had lots of skipping rhymes too\\

Ahhh memories those were the best days!!
