Helpful Teaching Tips

What do you do if your child is having difficulty learning the rhymes? An introductory section includes information for parents, such as detailed benefits of clapping games and how to modify them for different skill levels.

Combined Video and PDF Support

It is frustrating to have only the words to a rhyme or just a video to watch. Neither on its own is sufficient to learn clapping games easily. Each game is demonstrated by children in a short video where you can clearly see their hand motions. Each game also includes a PDF download ready for printing comprised of the full text of the rhyme, a clapping term glossary, and the rhyme written with easy to understand clapping instructions.

I remember doing hand clapping games when I was a little girl, especially at Bible camp in the summer. I loved the rhythm and the sing-song rhymes, and I wanted to share that with my daughters. I didn't remember off the top of my head any of the rhymes anymore, so your site was a great find! The demo videos are good for my visual learner, and I appreciate the PDFs for quick reference. Thanks for the great resource!

I remember playing and really enjoying hand clapping games when I was young, but I can't remember them well enough to teach them to my children. I'm not able to spend time searching the internet for hand clap games. Hand Clapping Fun takes all the work out of looking for rhymes. There is no way I will hand over the computer for my kids to search for clapping games on their own because of what may come up in the search, but now I can open this website, which is super easy to navigate, and let them learn on their own. Hand Clapping Fun is a blessing and has brought a lot of fun and laughs into our home!

My girls are 4 and 7 yo. They are delighted to learn hand clapping games. They are more confident and proud to help younger children learn the games and be able to play with others while bringing a new idea. They feel special and part of a new community :) I already see them change and mature, it's awesome! In the same way, it is keeping "the little" inside them. I also notice that it is helping them develop a well-balanced mind. Can't wait to learn the other hand-clapping games with them! Thanks lot for this work, I was glad to find a good and clean hand-clapping resource :)

You can find all of these hand clapping games on YouTube for free. But you will spend hours searching and previewing them since 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 make learning the rhyme and clapping pattern easier
