Players form in a circle. Each individual puts their left hand palm up on the hand of the person to their left. A song is then sung as follows, “Down by the banks of the hanky-panky where the bull frogs jump from bank to banky with an ipes, ops, ips, the bull frog gets you with a big kerplop.” One player begins the song and everyone else joins in. The player who starts takes their left hand and hits the person to their rights hand who then does the same to the person to their right and so on around the circle. Whoever hand is last hit on “kerplop” is out. The last two players hold each others hand and pull back and forth their hands towards each other. Whoever’s arm is extended on the kerplop loses.
