El Juego del Flor

El juego de la flor S-America Cuba Running around  Props: chalk, stone for drawing N.o.p.: 6 >
Around a circle some leaves are drawn on the playground, like a flower. In each leaf there is written a name of a country. The girl who starts the game says something and at the end of her sentence she mentions a name of one of the children. While shouting this name, everybody runs away from the ‘flower’.
But they all must stand still when the person who was mentioned stands suddenly in the circle and shouts out to stop! He must then try to reach with big steps the nearest person from the flower and touch him/her. When so, he/she will be the next person to start the game.
