Tingo Tango

Are you looking for a quick and easy fun game to play?

There’s a game from Latin America that’s just the ticket.

Tingo Tango is the perfect energiser and it doesn’t take much setting up.

Get children to stand in a circle and choose one pupil who will close their eyes and keep saying “Tingo.”

Children in the circle pass a ball (any soft object) from person to person but when the pupil who is chanting “Tingo” says “Tango,” the person who has the ball or small object must come to the middle of the circle to answer a question or perform an action as a ‘penitencia’/penance or penalty.

Once the pupil has answered the question or completed the task, this same pupil takes the place of the person who was chanting “Tingo” and the game starts all over again.
