Skipping Rhymes

These are some of the Skipping Rhymes that I remember - plus some given to me by my grandchildren. 

You're supposed to do the actions in each of these first three rhymes!

"I am a Girl Guide"

I am a Girl Guide dressed in blue,
These are the actions I must do,
Salute to the Captain,
Bow to the Queen,
And turn my back ,
To the boy in green

"Girl Guide, Girl Guide, Dressed in Blue"

Girl guide, girl guide, dressed in blue, 
These are the actions you must do:
Stand at attention, stand at ease,
Bend your elbows, bend your knees.
Salute to the captain, bow to the queen,
Turn your back on the dirty submarine.

I can do the heel and toe, I can do the splits. 
I can do the hoochy-koochy, just like this. 

Girl Guide, Girl Guide, dressed in green, 
The leader sent me to the Queen. 
The queen didn't want me, sent me to the King 
The King said "Turn around and count to seventeen". 
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, ...  17 

 

"Teddy Bear (Version 1)"

Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Turn around,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Touch the ground,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Two high kicks,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Do the splits!

 

"Teddy Bear (Version 2)"

Teddy bear,  teddy bear,
Touch the ground,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Turn around,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Walk upstairs,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Say your prayers,
Teddy bear, teddy bear
Turn out the light,
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Say goodnight!

 

"Jelly on a Plate"

Jelly on a Plate 
Jelly on a plate
Jelly on a plate
Wibble wobble wibble wobble
Jelly on a plate

Pickles in a jar
Pickles in a jar
Ooh! ah! ooh! ah!
Pickles in a jar

Sausages in a pan
Sausages in a pan
Turn them over, turn them over
Sausages in a pan. 

Jelly on a Plate 
Jelly on a plate
Jelly on a plate
Wibble wobble wibble wobble
Jelly on a plate

"10 Little Sausages"

10 little sausages sizzling in a pan
1 went 'pop'
The other went 'bang'

9 little sausages sizzling in a pan
1 went 'pop'
The other went 'bang'

8 little sausages sizzling in a pan

..... etc

 

 

 

"Bumper Car, Bumper Car"

Bumper car, bumper car
Number 48,
Whizzed round the corner…..

(child leaves the skipping and runs round the person turning)
How many boys/girls did you kiss last night
1,2,3,4,5' etc

(till they are out)

An alternative is
'how many cars did you crash last night'

 

If you would like to send me any rhymes to add to these pages (including the tune if possible!)

These are for more than one skipper - so you need two to turn the rope and as many as you can manage inside the rope!

______

Apples, peaches, pears and plums, 
Jump out when your birthday comes, 
Is it January, February........ 

____

"All in together girls

Never mind the weather girls

When I count 20

The rope must be empty"
