"My school yard version of the 'Bluebells, Cockleshells' skipping song..." -Gillian

Bluebells, Cockleshells - Canadian Children's Songs - Canada - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Game Instructions

(1) Long rope swinging from side to side.
(2) On "over" the rope turns up and over, and continues this way.
(3) On "pepper" the rope turns faster.


Here's another version that's sung in Canada:

Blue bells, cockle shells,
Evy ivy overhead,
My mother said that I was born in...
January, February,
March, April,
May, June, July, August,
September, October,
November, December!
