Abstract

Clapping games are an important part of the play repertoire of primary-school-age girls. The games give the appearance of great complexity when performed by skilled practitioners. A closer examination of the movements and music shows that children use a relatively small number of movements and tunes to devise a remarkable number of games. Examined here is the most popular of the melodies and the ways in which children utilize it.
