Philippines: A Game and Manners
Pabitin is a traditional children’s party game in the Philippines. Small bags of toys or treats are hung from a grid of sticks or wires. An adult raises and lowers the treats by pulling a rope or string attached to the grid. As the treats are lowered, the children jump up to try to grab them before the grid is pulled away.
Children in the Philippines learn to greet older people in a special way. The children take the adult’s hand and touch the back of the hand to their own forehead.
