Play a Colombian Game

Tingo, Tingo, Tango
Players stand in a circle. One player is “it.” The player who is “it” hides his or her eyes while standing some distance from the circle and repeats, “Tingo, tingo, tingo, tingo.” As “it” continues to say, “Tingo,” the other children pass a small object around the circle from hand to hand.

The player who is “it” switches and calls out, “Tango!” ; the player caught with the object in hand has to pay a penalty. The player holding the object must perform a task suggested by “it.” For example, he or she might be asked to sing a song, crow like a rooster, recite a Bible verse, or hop around the circle on one foot. The player who paid the penalty becomes “it” for the next game.
