>I don't recall "scissor steps" at all.

Step with the left foot to the right and with the right foot to the left.

>Should add that "redlight, greenlight" was also a name for what I
>think was the same game.

I think that that is different from Mother, May I? That is the game
where someone has their back to people moving (green light) and when
they turn around the people have to stop (red light).
