A molinillo is a little whisk used for stirring chocolate milk in some countries like Mexico. It looks like the whisk in the picture above.

Game Instructions

We sing this song in a big circle holding hands. We start the game by saying "chocolate, molinillo" and we join hands and move them as we do when stirring the chocolate with the stirrer. I think that when we say "estirar" we stretch without breaking the circle (to make it wider). When we start singing "dicen que soy…" someone goes to the center of the circle and whirls around while hopping on one foot, while closing his/her eyes. When he says "pero más me gustan los ojos de usted", he pulls out his hand to point to someone then opens his eyes. Whoever has been designated will be the next one to go in the middle.
