Cham Lok Lak – Cambodia

Cham Lok Lak Asia Cambodia Counting out Rhymes game No props N.o.p.: 6
Children stand in a circle and one child has his hand in an open position like he gets something. And that he does: all the surrounding children are pushing their forefinger in his hand while reciting some rhyme. At the end of the rhyme the boy who holds his hand ‘open’ must try to catch one of the many fingers. If he succeeds, it’s the boy’s turn who is caught. Before any game can begin, it is very important for children to choose who will be ‘it’ or ‘on’. But in many places nowadays this ‘pre-play’  counting out has become a game in itself.

Bey Dok Mouy – Cambodia

Bey Dok Mouy Asia Cambodia Running around game No props N.o.p.: 20
Eight groups of two children each stand in a circle and two tiggers choose who is the ‘tigger’. The tigger must try to tag the other, but he can escape by standing quickly in front of one out of eight groups. At the same moment he stands in front of a group of two, the perso who stands in third position , must run immediately to avoid being tagged by still the same tigger. Very good game for position-thinking ánd running!
