2. Chinese Garter is a popular street game for Pinoy kids, especially girls, that requires flexibility, balance and coordination. 

The game is played by two teams using a garter from a sewing store. The objective of the game is to be able to successfully jump over the garter as it is gradually held higher by the opposing side (Level1-10). The team leader or "Mother" can "save" her team from elimination if she can make her team's final jump.

4.  PITIK-BULAG. A game that involves 2 players. One covers his eyes with a hand while the other flicks a finger (pitik) over the hand covering the eyes. The person with the covered eyes gives a number with his hand the same time the other does. If their numbers are the same, then they exchange roles in the game. Did you have FUN playing this? :)
