*The "solido" is a Portuguese dance.

Game Instructions

The children stand in a circle. In the middle, one child covers the eyes of another child. Someone standing in the circle holds a lemon in his closed hand. When they sing "Quem tem?" (Who has it?) all the kids raise up their arms. The kid who had his eyes covered goes around the circle patting the other children's hands until he finds the lemon. When he finds it, he goes into the middle of the circle and covers the eyes of the child who had the lemon. Then the lemon is given to another child who's standing in the circle.
