Oboshinotentoten Game Instructions

  • Kids stand in a circle with joining hands. Everyone’s left hand has to be under the hand of the person to the left, palms facing up. Everyone’s right hand has to be over the hand of the person to the right.
  • They all start singing and one starts the hand clapping game: with his/her right hand he claps the hand of the kid on his left. Then the first kid puts his right hand back on top of the hand of the kid to the right. The action is repeated by the second kid and goes on until the end of the song.
