Én kis kertet kerteltem - Hungarian Children's Songs - Hungary - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Game Instructions

First line: stroke the child's palm,
Second line: poke the child's palm with your index finger,
Third line: swing the child's hands,
Fourth line: slap the child's hands gently.


Older kids can play it themselves:

1. Pretending raking with their hands,
2. Poking their palm with their index finger,
3. Swinging their hands pretending to be the wind,
4. Shaking their hands pretending to be the rain, and clap once at the end.
