Skipping games and skipping rhymes - remember?

Recommended Posts

When I was a kid at school we used to have lots of skipping games. It was one of the few occasions when boys and girls would play together.


At playtime there'd be kids with skipping ropes all over the playground. Sometimes you'd get a couple of girls with a length of washing line and they'd create a huge skipping area and us kids would queue up to jump in and skip, several of us at a time, while they chanted certain rhymes.


I can't remember many of those skipping rhymes now, but maybe you can?


"Salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar....:)
