Csön, csön, gyűrű - Hungarian Children's Songs - Hungary - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Game Instructions

The children sit in a circle. One of them goes out of the circle and is the one who is "It". The other kids hide a ring (or something small) in somebody's hands. Then everybody clasps his hands shut and they call back the one who's "It". Singing the song, the one who's "It" goes around touching the children's hands on the beat of the song. When the one who's "It" is approaching the one who has the ring, the children sing louder, when the one who's "It" is moving away, they sing softer. If the one who's "It" can find the ring, they change places.
