12 Unforgettable Hand Clapping Games!

Break for Recess! It’s time to rhyme.

1. Pat-A-Cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man.
Bake me a cake as fast as you can;
Roll it, Pat it and mark it with B,
Put it in the oven for baby and me.

(aka patty cake)

2. Rockin’ Robin

He rocks in the tree-top all a day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and a-singin’ the song
All the little birds on J-Bird St.
Love to hear the robin goin’ tweet tweet

3. Chinese Restaurant

I went to a Chinese restaurant,
To buy a loaf of bread, bread, bread,
I went up to the counter,
And this is what he said, said, said.

4. Miss Mary Mac

Miss Mary Mac, Mac, Mac
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 elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence

5. Hambone

Hambone, Hambone, have you heard?
Papa’s gonna buy me a mockingbird.
If that mockingbird don’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy me a diamond ring.

Bo-bo ski watten tatten,
Ah-ah-ah, boom boom boom
Itty bitty watten tatten
Bo bo ski watten tatten
Bo bo ski watten tatten

Down, down, baby
Down, down the roller coaster
Sweet, sweet, baby
I’ll never let you go
Shimmy, Shimmy cocoa pop
Shimmy, Shimmy pow

Miss Lucy had a steam boat
The steamboat had a bell,
Miss Lucy went to heaven and the
Steamboat went to…
Hello operator

9. I Wish I Had A Nickel

I wish I had a nickel
I wish I had a dime
I wish I had a boyfriend to kiss me all the time
My mum gave me a nickel
My dad gave me a dime
My sister gave me a boyfriend to kiss me all the time
