Why Hand Clapping Fun?

When I first started teaching hand clapping games to my children, I spent a lot of time searching YouTube and the Internet for different games. We have had a blast learning new clapping games and building brain connections. I am excited to present what we have learned in Hand Clapping Fun! 

With this product you will...


It can be time consuming to find quality videos demonstrating the rhymes and clapping games. (And sadly not all of the videos you find will be appropriate for children.) Hand Clapping Fun is a collection of 20 hand clapping games and rhymes compiled into one convenient place.


How do you know which rhymes to introduce first and which ones are appropriate in skill level and content? Hand Clapping Fun breaks the rhymes into three skill levels. And all of the rhymes are modest and stay away from questionable content.


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.


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.

Hand Clapping Fun was created for parents and grandparents of elementary aged children to help you teach clapping games to the next generation.

What Others are Saying

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.
