Hand Clapping Fun was created for parents and grandparents of elementary-aged children to help you teach clapping rhymes to the next generation.
You can find all of these hand clapping games on YouTube for free.
But you'll spend hours searching and previewing them because not all videos are appropriate. (I've been shocked at some of the hand clapping games videos on YouTube channels!)
Plus, it can be a challenge to figure out the clapping pattern and how to fit that pattern to the words of the rhyme. The special guitar-chord type PDF makes learning the rhyme and clapping pattern easier.
Your investment in Hand Clapping Fun will save you time and decrease the frustration of learning something new.
20 hand clapping rhymes, organized by difficulty level.
Each game is demonstrated by children in a short video where you can clearly see their hand motions.
PDF of the full text of the rhyme, a clapping term glossary, and the rhyme written with easy to understand clapping instructions.
Additional resources include teaching tips for modifying rhymes for different skill levels, advantages of playing hand clapping games, a clapping terms glossary, and more.
When my daughters were six and nine, we saw a video of children doing a hand clapping rhyme.
It looked so fun we wanted to learn it too! I remembered doing hand clapping rhymes as a child but not well enough to teach them to my children.
So we watched the video over and over and over. But it wasn't easy to learn by just watching the video. The children in the video went too fast, and it was challenging to figure out which words went with which motions.
Eventually, we figured it out and had a great time learning the rhyme together.
We wanted to learn more rhymes, so I searched YouTube, and I was shocked at what I saw! Some of the videos were helpful. Some were very inappropriate. There was no way I wanted to turn my children over to YouTube to learn the rhymes.
I decided to identify hand clapping rhymes to learn with my children. I researched and searched all over the Internet. I made a list of the most common rhymes as well as some not so well-known rhymes.
Once I had my list of rhymes to learn, I set about teaching them to myself. I wrote out the words to the rhyme and wrote short-hand notes under each word of which hand clapping motion accompanied that word.
The result looked a lot like a guitar chord chart, and it was much easier to teach the rhymes to my children.
Since I wanted to make the most of learning the rhymes, I made a few changes.
I enjoyed watching my daughters learn these rhymes.
They gained confidence as they taught the rhymes to their friends.
They learned how to cooperate with each other.
Playing hand clapping games together strengthened their relationship.
