I can't find it on the internet. I remember having motions that included clapping and hitting your thighs during the "knick-knack patty whack" part and then rolling your hands "home". Can anyone help me?

I totally know what you're talking about!! But I don't quite remember the motions either. Sorry. :( I hope someone does - I would love to do this with my girls.

Thanks, Sarah! I think that is almost it! I seem to remember more hand motions than that. What do you think, Jean?
