The first two children in each group is elected as “it”. The elected students will stand back to back, holding their knees while bending, and placing their behinds near each other. The other students will jump with their legs parted over the “it” plays one by one. If the students fall while jumping they become a “it” person. While the players are jumping they say “it is one one, two two, three three, four four, and continue to jump. Sometimes jokes are made while counting some of the numbers. Some examples are; “my eight is hop”, and stands on one foot. Plays who jump after him have to stand on one foot. The eight player is able to control how others walk who are after him. As the ninth player jumps he can say “stop” and every player has to stop where they are. They game continues similarly after determining a new “it”.
