Eu com es Quatro – Brazil

Eu com es quattro S-America Brazil Clapping game No props N.o.p : 4

Jogo de Barbante – Brazil

Jogo de Barbante S-America Brazil Playing with things Props: a little rope. N.o.p.: 2
Two children have tied the two ends of the rope together and if you put both hands in it, it forms a circle. If you have the rope between your hands, you then take the rope with your fingers and make a figure with the rope. You hold that figure between thumb and forefinger and then the other boy will move with his fingers into the rope and transforms the rope into another figure. At the same time he takes over the rope and the other boy will at his turn try to transform again the rope into another figure. It depends how many different variations in figures both children have learned, so it might continue for a long time: the more figures you know, the longer fun in playing they’ll have.
