La olla – Peru

La Olla S-America Peru Playing with things game Props: some bottle tops and little stones N.o.p.: 2 +
Four children play this game. One child draws an oval form (which symbolises an eye) on the ground and places four bottle tops in it. Every child has its own bottle top. The first player throws his stone from the position of the oval (eye) to the line further down, which the other players also do. The player, who throws his stone nearest that line, may start the game. He then must stand behind the line and try to hit one of the bottle tops out of the oval (eye). If he fails to touch one of the tops, then the child, who threw next closest to the line, may try to throw his stone to the tops. If he hits one of the tops out of the oval, then he subsequently throws his stone to the remaining tops in the oval (eye). If all tops are hit and out of the oval, then he may collect the tops as a winner and the game starts all over.
