Young Italian children play a game that is very similar to the one known as “Ring-a-Ring-o’-Roses”. It is called Girotondo.

How to play:girotondo - Italian children's game
The children make a ring by holding hands and walking in a circle while chanting a short rhyme.
At the end of the song they throw themselves down onto the ground and then they start all over again.

 

Rhyme:
Giro girotondo
Casca il mondo
Casca la Terra
Tutti giu’ per terra!
Translation:
Turn round and round
the world falls down
the Earth falls down
everybody down on the ground!

Try it and have fun!
