Ovo Choco – Brazil

Ovo choco S-America Brazil Playing with things Props: piece of cloth N.o.p.: 8
A group of children are discussing who will be the first ‘runner with the piece of cloth. Then they sit on the ground in a circle and the runner walks along the circle. She must drop the cloth behind the back of one of the children in the circle, who are clapping and singing. When they stop singing (after ‘undostres’) the ‘runner’ must drop the cloth. As soon as a child in the circle finds out that the cloth is behind her back, she has to stand up and run after the ‘runner’ and try to touch her. The runner has an escape: she can sit down, before being touched, at the place where she left the piece of cloth. If she is not touched, the game continues and starts all over again.
