Sit across from your clapping partner. Begin by clapping your hands together at the same time, then reach out with your right hand to clap your partner's right hand. Next, clap your hands again. Now reach out with your left hand and clap your partner's left hand. Repeat. Clap on the beat.
Double, Double

Double double this this,
Double double that that,
Double this, double that,
Double double this that.

Hold your hands up, your fingers pointing to the ceiling.
As you're saying the rhyme, turn your hands back and forth.
Whenever you say "double," both hands are facing towards you.
Whenever you say "this," and "that," your palms are facing away from you. NOT as easy to do as it sounds!

Variations:  You can use almost any compound words.
Double double ice ice,
Double double cream cream.
Double ice, double cream,
Double double ice cream.
Miss Mary Mack
Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
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, fence, fence
They jumped so high, high, high
They touched the sky, sky, sky
And didn't come back, back, back
Till the fourth of July, July, July
Miss Susie
Miss Suzie had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell
Miss Suzie went to heaven
The steamboat went to
Hello operator
Please give me number nine
If you disconnect me
I'll kick you from
Behind the refrigerator there was a piece of glass
Miss Suzie sat upon it and cut her little
Ask me no more questions
Tell me no more lies
The boys are in the bathroom zipping up their
Flies are in the meadow
The bees are in the park
Miss Suzie and her boyfriend are kissing in the
Dark is like a movie
A movie's like a show
A show is like a TV screen
And that is all I know
Miss Susie
Miss Susie had a baby,
She named him Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub,
To see if he could swim
He drank up all the water,
He ate up all the soap,
He tried to eat the bathtub
But it wouldn’t go down his throat.
Miss Susie called the doctor,
Miss Susie called the nurse,
Miss Susie called the lady,
With the alligator purse
In came the doctor,
In came the nurse,
In came the lady,
With the alligator purse
Mumps said the doctor,
Measles said the nurse,
Hiccups said the lady
With the alligator purse
Miss Susie punched the doctor,
Miss Susie kicked the nurse,
Miss Susie thanked the lady
With the alligator purse
Say, Say, Oh Playmate
Say, say, oh playmate
Come out and play with me.
Bring out your dollies three.
Climb up my apple tree.
Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door.
And we'll be jolly friends
Forevermore, one two three four! (clap both hands straight across with partner when counting)

Say, say, oh playmate
I cannot play today
My dollies have the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo (cry, rub eyes)
My apple tree is dead
My rainbow's gone away
My cellar door is locked
Forevermore, one two three four (clap both hands straight across with partner when counting)
