Brazillian children’s game – Brazillian culture fun facts for kids

Children’s Games

  1. Quiemada: Like dodge ball, the game is played on an open field. Make two teams, and evenly place one team on one side of the field and the other team on the other side of the field. At both ends of the field, place a marker. One child runs through the middle as the teams throw balls from one side of the field to the other side. The one player attempts to not get hit. If he is hit, he sits out and another player runs through. This goes on until there is one player left, that player is the winner.
  2. Cinco Marias: A child takes five flat stones and places them on the ground. The child picks up a stone and tosses it up in the air, and attempts to pick up the other four stones at the same time. The first player to pick up all four before the fifth stone hits the ground is the winner.
  3. Futbol: Also called soccer, the game is played by two teams of children. The teams try to kick a ball into the opposing teams’ goal, without using anything but their feet. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
