A la rueda, la rueda de San Miguel, San Miguel,
Todos traen su caja de miel.
A lo maduro, a lo maduro,
Que se voltea María de burro.
To the circle, the circle of San Miguel, San Miguel.
Everyone brings their box [container] of honey.
As it’s ripe, as it’s ripe, have Maria [substitute child’s name] turn around like a donkey.
This is a fun circle game that can be done with any age. All children walk in a circle while holding hands (facing the center of the circle), like Ring Around the Rosie. When a child’s name is called, that child turns around in place and faces the outside of the circle. Play continues until all children are facing the outside of the circle.
