Hand Game

At Camp Karakariki when the Warrior Scouts were going to climb the big tree, two girls were getting bored.  While the rest were climbing the tree they thought of having some fun.  So they decided to play “Under the Bambushes”.  You can try it when you watch.  It is fun.

TRY IT!

Other classes – do you have any hand games that you’d like to teach us?  Can you upload a video to share with us?  (from Mr F)

  1. My classes in Canada used to play a circle clapping game to the song, “Stella-ella-ola”. I don’t know if my students here know it and I can’t remember the whole song to teach them. Maybe someone else can help?

  2. Your hands moved so fast the video couldn’t keep up with them. We know that hand game too- I wonder how it is that kids all over New Zealand know the same hand games.

  3. Hi
    We really liked your clapping game. Some people in our school know that game too.

    We have a clapping activity or routine that we do. We will make a video of it and put it on our blog to show you. We will let you know when we have made it.
