Walas Paula – Sri Lanka

Walas Paula  Asia  Sri Lanka  Running around game  No props  N.o.p.: 25
About seven groups of three children are standing in a circle. Every child of a group gets a number: one, two or three. In the middle of the circle stand two referees, one of them is yelling out every time one number. The child of each group with that yelled-out number, must then immediately run clockwise as fast as he can until he reaches again his group. The two referees will decide which boy or girl is first back in his group. If your group has won several times, then that group will be the winner.

Around ten groups of two children are standing in a circle while holding their hands tied together high in the air. All children must run under their hands. When they hear a hard hand-clap sound, the tied hands of all children will go down. If you are caught within these
‘traps’-hands, you are out. The winner is the last child who still runs free!

Thith Thile Bamuna Asia Sri Lanka Clapping game No props N.o.p.: 2
Two girls are clapping while singing a song. The move-structure of clapping is quite simple, but I know they surely will know also some other clapping games.

Malu Dela – Sri Lanka

Malu Dela Asia Sri Lanka Running around game No Props N.o.p.: 15
This game starts with two children who try to tag any child they can get.
So the more children are tagged, the longer and more difficult it will be to tag another
child. But: it’s all about fun they have together!
