Blarak Blarak Sempal – Indonesia

Blarak blarak sempal Asia Indonesia Playing with things Props: part of a dried coconut N.o.p.: 4
Four children make a circle around a small piece of coconut and have their hands tied. Two of them, standing opposite each other, put each onefoot in the coconut. The other two boys then walk in one and the same direction while holding all hands tied. While walking in a circle all boys say some text and they try to hold on, but most of the time all boys get tired and fall on the ground before they have finished the text. Then the game starts again, if they still have the strength for it.
