*Note from Monique Palomares, " 'Aserrín' is sawdust, and 'aserrín, aserrán' is an onomatopoeic form to imitate the sound of the saw.

Game Instructions

The way to play 'Aserrín, aserrán' is : child riding the adult's knees, the adult holds the child's hands and makes a push and pull saw movement."
