I just rememembered another one! "Apples, oranges, peaches plums, tell me when your birthday comes, January, February, March, April..."

What's the one about telling your "boyfriends" name? Whatever letter you stopped on, your boyfriend's name started with that letter. And there's one about a car "I took a little trip..."

Amanda Ann said...

How about this one:

"Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, show your shoe Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, that will do!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, go upstairs Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, say your prayers Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn out the lights Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, say good-night!


Heather (Bunnybear/Sarasamsmom) said...

Here's mine (I could never get all the way through these without tripping on the rope):

Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, show your shoe,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, that will do.

Teddy bear, teddy bear, brush your hair,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, climb the stairs.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, reach for the sky,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, wave goodbye.

Tracey said...

How about...

"All in together girls,
Never mind the weather girls,
Jump in when your birthday comes,
January, February, March, etc..."

Heather (Bunnybear/Sarasamsmom) said...

Here's another one, since Amanda Ann also did Teddy Bear:

Down by the river, down by the sea,
Johnny broke a bottle and blamed it on me,
I told ma, ma told pa,
Johnny got a lickin' so ha ha ha!
How many lickin's did Johny get? (count jumps)

Karen said...

Bluebells, cockle shells, eevy ivy over!
My mother sent me to the store
And this is what she sent me for:
Peppers! (etc etc)

Ladybug, Ladybug, turn around,
Ladybug, Ladybug touch the ground.
Ladybug, Ladybug shine your shoes,
Ladybug, Ladybug read the news.
Ladybug, ladybug, how old are you?
One, two, three, four . . . . .

I only remember that first verse!
it has been such a while!!!

Pauline Clark said...

Girl Guide, Girl Guide dressed in blue
These are the actions that you must do
Stand at attention
Stand at ease
Bend those elbows
Bend those knees
I can do the heel, toe
I can do the kick
I can do the wiggle wobble just like this (and jump out of the rope)

Anonymous said...

(female) and (male)
sittin' in a tree,
First comes love,
then comes marriage,
then comes (male) pushing a baby carriage.
How many kisses did she get?
1-2-3 etc. least that's how I think it went.....LOL

Ms. Suzie had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell, the steamboat went to heaven, Ms. Suzie went to
Hello operator please give me number nine, and if you disconnect me I'll kick you from
Behind the fridgerator the was a piece of glass, Ms. Suzie fell upon it and broker her big fat
Ask me no more questions, tell me no more lies, this is how the story ends, I'm sorry Ms. Suzie dies.

Starr said...

We skipped to some of the rhymes mentioned above, but this was our favourite:

Vote, vote, vote for (full name of person 1)
In comes (person 2) at the door
She is the one who is having all the fun,
So we don't need (person 1) anymore,
Shut the door, slam it tight.
Vote, vote, vote for (person 2)etc.

Lois said... all have such good memories...the only one I remember is the Cinderella song! But, I don't remember the snake part...just that it ended..and how many kisses did it take! (for what we were too young to imagine!)

Rose S said...

Reading through all these skipping songs makes me remember the doing them but not the actual words. My daughter told me of this one

One, two, three!
Who will skip the rope with me?
Swing it high, swing it low;
Over, under, who will go?
One, two, three!
Come on and skip with me!

Deanne said...

Wow! Thanks so much ladies for all the skipping rhymes!! I'll be choosing a winner after the crop is over!!

Jean Marie said...

Wow!! is right!!you ladies have remembered so many that I had forgotten!
here is one of my childhood fav.skipping songs.

Mabel, Mabel, set the table.
Don't forget the red hot label.
Shake the salt and shake the pepper.
Who will be the highest stepper?
Winds blow hot and winds blow freeze,
How many times did Mabel sneeze?
One, two, three . . . . .

Here is a game we played while "chinese skipping" (aka, an elastic.)

Two girls hold the elastic around their ankles. A third girl jumps in and out of the elastic, following these chanted directions:

In, (jump into the middle)
Out, (jump out - one foot on each side)
Side, (jump one foot in middle one foot on one side)
By Side, (jump on foot in middle- one foot on the other side)
On, (jump on the elastic- one foot on each side)
In, (jump into the middle)
Out (jump out- one foot on each side)
If the sequence is done correctly then raise the elastic to mid calf and so on.

KarenB said...

Loving all the skipping rhymes. I remember this one:

"Strawberry, shortcake, treacle tart.
Tell me the name of my sweetheart...
A B C D E ....."

When you tripped up (I always did!!) you had to name the boy starting with that letter. Ewwwwwwwww.....

Beverley Todd said...

Wow! You guys all have such great memories. I don't really remember playing skipping games so much - but then I was probably off climbing trees with my brother!! LOL

ScrapAloha said...

Here's one:
Bubble gum bubble bum in a dish
How many pieces do you wish...

then you count how many jumps you make before you mess up.

This was fun!
