One Tap, Two Tap

Game Description: 
A great cool-down game that works to improve coordination and listening skills. no equipment need for this one!
Keep the tapping going by watching and listening to the taps.
Game Rules: 
Everyone lies in a circle (on their stomachs) with their hands on the floor in the middle. Players place their hands on the far side of the hands of the players next to them, so that no one person has their own hands side-by-side. Someone starts the game by tapping their hand once and the tap goes clockwise around the circle. Each player has the option of tapping their hand once or double-tapping. A double tap switches the group's direction of the tapping. The game is supposed to move quickly. Anyone who taps when it is not their turn or takes too long when it is their turn has to remove a hand from the game. When both hands are removed they are 'out'. It is a good idea to have two circles going so that players who are 'out' can just go to the other circle.
