On the ground a circuit is drawn, divided in some plots left and right. Two children (one left and one at the right) throw a little stone. The first time you throw on plot one and after every round they throw the stones one plot further. While hopping they arrive at the plot where the stone lays and then they have to move this stone with one foot to the other plot and further. If you start at the left side you must hopscotch your way back along the right side. (Or the other way around)

Lat bong sap ngua – Vietnam

Lat bong sap ngua Asia Vietnam Playing with things game Props: little cards N.o.p.: 2
Two children play this game, they have little cards, every card must have one blank white side, the other side is coloured or printed. Both children put their card on the ground with the printed side on top. The intention of this game is that one card has to lay down with the printed side under and the other card has to be on top with the blank side facing up. (The cards only need to lay over each other for a very small piece) This all happens by holding another card in their hands, by which they, in turns, hop/turn/move the card on the ground. One has to play very tactical, always one step ahead. A player, who has placed the cards correctly according the game, is the winner and gets both cards, after which the game starts all over.

A group of children are forming two circles, one inside and one outside circle. Inside the circle stand two children blindfolded. The children forming the circle walk clockwise while saying some rhyme. At the end of the rhyme all children sit on the ground except the two children in the middle. These two walk among the sitting children and are feeling with their hands the faces of the children and must guess who is in front of them. If they guess it right, they change blindfolding with the child who is to be guessed. If not, the procedure will be repeated.
