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’.

Bro Bro Brille – Denmark

Bro Bro Brille Europe Denmark Singing and dancing game No props N.o.p.: 10 +
A school class playing outside and four groups of two children hold their hands together high in the air, so all other children can walk under it. They sing a song and at the end of it all four groups let fall their hands downwards, so in most cases a child is caught between the hands. This child must answer a question and depending the answer she gives, she then must stand either left or right behind one of the children.  Then the song starts again and will be continued till all kids are caught.
