All of you, holding hands, make a circle and move in a clockwise direction to the rhythm of this song: 'Along with the potato, eat salad, what the gentlemen eat, oranges and lemons. Achupé, achupé, sitting down I stayed '. Don't forget to do what the letter says and when it's time to sit down, sit down!

This game has the value that, in addition to entertaining, it promotes the child's autonomy and trust in others. One 'flirts', is blindfolded and has to help each other to 'hunt' the rest. It is important to play this game in an enclosed space and remove all furniture that could harm the blindfolded person.

For this game you will have to be at least three people. Two of them will hold hands and raise them in an arc shape. The third participant will have to go out and in making a circle while singing the song of 'pass my yes, come on sat, through the door of Alcalá, those in front run a lot, those in the back will stay'. If when you finish, your colleagues 'lock you in their hands', they will ask you: 'Which fruit do you prefer?' and depending on what he chooses, he will get behind one or another partner.

- To the shoe from behind
We all stand in a circle again, this time sitting. One of the participants will remain standing and, while the others cover their eyes with their hands and sing from 'to the shoe from behind, tris after; you neither see nor will you see, sad after; look up, that beans fall; look down, chickpeas fall; to sleep, to sleep, the wise men are coming. ' When they finish the letter, they will have to look to see if the shoe is behind them and try to go and get their partner. If you catch him, he'll go back to his place! If, on the contrary, your partner sits in his place, he will have to hide the shoe behind a partner!
