Stuck in the Toilet – New Zealand

Stuck in the toilet Oceania New Zealand Singing and dancing  No props  N.o.p.: 7 >

Boys and girls play this game on a wide school playfield and mostly on bare feet on the grass. Everybody kneels down and one girl touches softly, but without making a sound,  the back of the children, except one. All who have been touched stand up,  make a circle and start hopping in one direction while singing: you’re stuck in the toilet. The boy in the middle, who was not touched, must now try to escape from the ‘toilet’.

Bull Rush – New Zealand

Bull rush  Oceania  New Zealand  Running around game  No props N.o.p.: 6 >    Children stand on one side of the playfield (with play constructions) and on the other side inside the playfield are two other children who must try to tag the child whose name is called by them. If the children succeed in reaching the other side without being tagged, then it starts again. Because this quite a physical running game, most of the time after one round the taggers will be changed for still ‘fresh’  running  kids.
