Materials: none necessary. TO PLAY: one person of the group is “it” (the el que se la queda) and must run to tag someone, and then they must run hand in hand. These people run together to tag another person. In a way that everyone runs together holding hands in a chain until everyone is tagged. (A medida que van cogiendo a los compañeros se van enganchando a la cadena hasta que todos estén cogidos).. The game finishes when all the people are in the chain, and the winner is the last person tagged. Copyright. Pilar Mantero &Maggie Nowicki
