Before iPods and Game Boys, there were those tried and true childhood games...Games that allowed kids to play with the friends and neighbors - great even today for birthday parties and family get-togethers! A slice of Puerto Rican folklore lives on whenever and where ever these games are played. Un, dos tres...pescador,: paso de gigante; Estatuas; el trompo; Escondite; Papa Caliente, Gallinita Ciega; La Caretilla; Tira y Tápate; Peregrina; Pelea de gallitos.
(Spanish teachers, please note: These games have their North American counterparts. Your students will recognize the games - Now you can use them in your class and play them in "Spanish"!)
