Played in the streets of India, Kith Kith is a game similar to hopscotch. If you are familiar with the traditional hopscotch game, you will notice differences, primarily the use of a round disk instead of a stone.
Say, in your own words:
We're going to play a well known game from India called kith kith. Kith kith means "one two houses." When Reverend Margaret Barr was gathering students for her school, kith kith would have been a common game among the children.
Explain: One person at a time plays. The disk (a plastic lid) is tossed into square one. The player jumps into the square, lands on one foot, and, bending down, touches the disk. Still standing on one foot, the player uses the other foot to tap or kick the disk into the next consecutive square. The player is out if:
The player then moves to the back of the line and, when it comes time for a second turn resumes in the square where they left off. The child who completes all the squares first is the winner.
