La Payaya and Corre el Anillo


I am happy to participate in the HHM hosted by the Multicultural Kid Blog bloggers! and  today I want to share two of my favorites childhood games. Please watch the videos as they are more explicative than words. 

La Payaya

To play this game you need five small stones or tokens and speed skills. See the videos to learn how to play.






Corre el Anillo

Between 5-6 children sit next to each other with their hands in a prayer position, but horizontally. 

Another player has a ring between his/her hands in a prayer position as well. This player uses his/her hands to go through each player's hands and sing the song, and carefully, give the ring to one of the players without being caught by the others. Watch this short video to see how it works: 

Corre el anillo
 por un portillo
pasó un chiquillo
 comienzo huesillos.

¡A todos les dio,
 menos a mí!

 Eche prenda, 
señorita o caballero
 ¿quién lo tiene de usted?






Also Mundo Lanugo has child friendly explicative videos to learn from other latino games. I must confess that I felt like playing again watching the videos. Click here if you want to watch their videos.
