El Pañuelo – Cuba

El pañuelo S-America Cuba Playing with things Props: piece of cloth or plastic bag N.o.p.: 10 >
A girl stands in the middle of two groups, divided left and right from her. Everybody of each group gets a number, so therefore it is necessary that there are two groups with the same number of children.
The girl in the middle calls a number and then from both groups boys/girls come running forwards to the girl in the middle, who holds a plastic bag in her hand. The boy/girl who can take first this bag, runs back to his group without being tagged by the other boy, whose intention was exactly the same: to get the bag!
Rules may be like: the group who has first reached a number of winning runs, is the winner.
