Moon and Morning Stars
This game is played in sunny and shady places by children in Spain. One player is chosen to be the moon, and he stands in the shade or shadows of trees and buildings. The moon can’t go into the sunshine.
All the other players are morning stars. They can be in the sunshine, but if they go into shade or shadows, the moon tries to catch or tag them.
While the stars are playing in the sunshine, they sing this little song:
When the moon finally tags a star, that player becomes the next moon.
