Clapping Game and Physical Play

Sometimes children played clapping games that were not recognisable to the fieldworkers and appeared to be an activity done to fill in time.


At School 02

Players: 2
Age: 6

Two girls spontaneously started a clapping game. They clapped slowly, as one girl seemed to know the rhyme and the actions better than her friend. They had been watching some children playing, and seemed to be deciding where to go and what to do. The clapping seemed to be done as a 'fill-in' activity as they did it only once, then had a brief discussion and ran away.
