Brain Break Hand Game

My students in Colombia have been playing these hand games and I thought it was would make a good activity for a “brain break” in the Spanish classroom. You can see the example below.

Choco Choco La La
Choco choco te te
choco la choco te
choco la te

mari mari po po
mari mari sa sa
mari po mari sa
mari po sa


The first syllable you use your palms, the second syllable you use the back of your hands, and the third syllable you use your knuckles. The idea is to go as fast as you can without messing up.
