Does anyone still play Double Dutch. I don’t ever see kids out on the sidewalk playing like they did years ago. It seemed like a natural activity when I was a child, but I’ve begun to wonder whether it was just a fad.
Also, I can’t remember most of the rhymes we used to chant while playing Double Dutch. I can remember ones that were used in other games, but sometimes were imported to Double Dutch, like “Engine, engine number nine…” But as to rhymes used only in Double Dutch, I can only remember fragments, like:
Oooo, she thinks she’s fine
Walkin’ down that fine line.
My, she think she’s bad
Puttin’ on her maxi pad…
Does anyone else remember the rhymes they played the game with?
