TAPENT, TAPENT PETITES MAINS (Clap, Clap Little Hands)

In this fun and interactive traditional French children’s song, kids make different motions with their hands and arms. They clap their hands; they spin them like a windwill; they move them like a fish; they fly like a bird. The motions start out slowly, but get faster and faster until they are comically quick. The song is a great way to involve gross motor skills in the process of learning French. The song “TAPENT, TAPENT PETITES MAINS” is from Whistlefritz’s CD CHA, CHA, CHA — French Learning Songs.
