Hand Clapping Games
Hand clapping games are great fun! They also represent great coordination excercise as well as language excercise.
Most clapping games are quite difficult, but after a lot of practice, it looks really impressive when they are done. Doing clapping games is a perfect activity for Holidays, weekends and family parties.
The clapping games lyrics are often quite weird and sometimes pretty "rude". But don't mind, the kids won't get hurt. The actually love it! Just remember how fun it was singing these songs yourself... :)
Good luck - and have fun!
