Zoentjes geven – The Netherlands

Zoentjes geven Europe The Netherlands Guessing game  No props N.o.p.: 5>
The children stand in a circle with their hands tight. One child is picked to stand in the middle of the circle. When all children start singing ‘1-2-3-4-5-6-7’ , they also walk in the direction opposite from the child in the middle. At the end of the song, the child in the middle is pointing with the arm to a child right in front of him/her. That child then is also coming in the circle and with their backs standing to each other, they must move their head either to the left or to the right when they count ‘1-2-3’. When saying ‘3’ they must have their head in the final position. If both children are looking at the same side, they have to give each other a little kiss. If their heads are not looking at the same side, they just shake hands. Whatever position their heads might be, after every ‘kiss’ or ‘shake hands’ the last incoming child in the circle starts in the middle position and the game starts again.
