Method Description: How to Play: Stand behind each other and hold onto each other's waist - this forms a snake. A child, holding the vessel and a wooden spoon, stands outside the line. This child hits a simple rhythm, the "snake" has to jump a little bit forward in the same rhythm. It is not so easy, because the snake can easily break apart. After three successful jumps the snake-charmer stands by the end of the line, and the one who was the the serpent's head will be the snake-charmer for the next three rounds.
