Slaps – New Zealand

Slaps Oceania New Zealand Clapping game No props N.o.p.: 2
Two children are having their hand palms together in a vertical way and they touch with the fingertops each others’ hands. The slapper is on offense, and attempts to bring his hands over to slap the backsides of his opponent’s hands. This must be done with sufficient speed, because the slappee’s goal is to pull his hand away, and out of the area where the hands overlap, to avoid the slap. If the slappee completely avoids all hand contact with the slapper during the slap, then the roles switch.
