Thread Name: Child's Game: Elastics
Subject: RE: Child's Game: Elastics
I played it in NZ in the 80's. We simply called it "Elastics" I remember I also used to get mum's old stockings, tie them together, and put them around two barstools to play on my own.

I remember the "england wales" one, but we ended it with inside outside.

Some others I recall only certain words, or actions, but not the rhymes. Maybe they will prompt others to remember (or perhaps my friends and I just made them up lol).

One was "Mello Yello" something about centre spangle
I also remember one where you had to run around one of the elastic holders and jump back in.
