A my name is Alice

Kids sit in a circle, Indian style, and start a clapping pattern. Both hands slap knees, cross to tap shoulders, clap together, shoulders, knees, shoulders, together, etc. The person who is “it” goes first. Speaking to the rhythm of the clapping of the group, start with the letter A and choose a girl’s name, boy’s name, place they come from and something they sell. When that person is finished, after their hands touch their knees, they arch the right hand, over to the left knee to clap their hands on top of that knee. The person sitting next to them at that knee is the next person to go. The group clap pattern never stops…

B my name is Beth and my husband’s name is Brad and we come from Buffalo and we sell bananas
C my name is Connie and my husband’s name is Chris and we come from Chicago and we sell corn

  1. I use to play that game with I was a child (A MY NAME IS Alice etc ), but I played it with a ball doing different things with the ball as we said the saying. I don’t remember all the different moves. Like this first moves was bounce the ball with and catch it with both hands on each letter, then bounce the ball and catch it with one hand ect. there was around 10 or 12 different things to do and who every finished first won. I don’t remember the name of the game either. I am 68 and would like to show my grandchildren the game. does any one else remember this??? My e-mail is crgratton3708@aol.com Thanks

    • Newark NJ I play this game also, we throw a ball up in the air and had to clap and say A my name is ______ before we caught the ball. just try to teach my granddaughters how to play. I am glad to find this site, because. My friends didn’t believe me, when I ask them if they know the abc game.

  2. We recited the words while bouncing a Spalding (not a Pinky they didn’t bounce as high), and we pronounced it more like Spaldine, As you bounce the ball you have to lift one leg and cross-over the ball before it hits the ground again. You can’t miss any word that begins with an “A” and then “B” or you’re out. The idea is to get all the way through to “Z”.

  3. In Brooklyn NY in the 1950s we played it similarly to what’s described by Linda, except it was usually “boyfriend” rather than “husband” and we ate the last item. The tricky part in passing your leg over the bouncing ball while chanting this was remembering to pass your leg over not only on the NOUNS for the letter in question, but any word within the chant that also started with that letter. So the leg passes for A would be as capitalized here: A my name is ALICE AND my husband’s name is AL, we live in ALASKA AND we eat APPLES. Two extra leg-passes for the “and’s”.
