Concentration clapping game
Kids love playing together. Clapping and singing is so much fun, so this game will keep them happy for hours.
Number of players:
Players sit in a circle cross-legged and take a number each, starting with number one.
They start singing the following song by slapping their thighs twice then clapping their hands twice:
Concentration (slap slap clap clap)
Are you ready? (slap slap clap clap)
If - so - (slap slap clap clap)
Let’s - go! (slap slap clap clap)
Then player one, continuing the rhythm, says her own number twice followed by another number in the circle.
For example: 1, 1, 4, 4 (slap slap clap clap)
Player 4 then does the same, starting with their own number and following with someone else's:
4, 4, 7, 7 (slap slap clap clap)
Anybody who makes a mistake or fails to keep the rhythm is out but remains in the circle, making it more difficult for the other players, who must remember not to use the numbers of the people who are out.
