hand clapping rhymes



Hand clapping has been happening on the playground for years and years. Everyone knows the different rhymes that get passed down through the generation. From example, I was singing rhymes that my great grandmother did when she was small! There are so many that I never even knew, but one that most people know is the famous 'see see my playmate'
A very simple one that is so easy to learn (although there are a few different lyrics)


One I recently found online was this one called 'Boom Snap Clap' which seems to be a lot more complex that the first one... (they even use their legs!)


Here are a few more rhymes that you might remember-

High low
chicken low
chicken low
chicken low
high low
chicken low
chicken low
hey ho 


My boyfriend gave me an apple
My boyfriend gave me a pear
My boyfriend gave me a kiss on the lips and threw me down the stairs
He threw me over Ireland
He threw over France
He threw me over the USA and then pulled down my pants!


Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack

All dressed in black, black, black


With silver buttons, buttons, buttons


All down her back, back, back


She asked her mother, mother, mother


For fifty cents, cents, cents


To see the elephant, elephant, elephant


Jump the fence, fence fence


They jumped so high, high, high


They touched the sky, sky, sky


And didn't come back, back, back


Till the fourth of July, July, July

See if you can learn some new and difficult hand clapping rhymes this summer!
