Assunto:  jogar bafo - pular elástico
 
Mensagem:  Having never been a child in Brazil, how are these games played?

"Jogar bafo" sounds like "to hold one's breath".  Is that possible?  (It is a contest to see who can stop breathing for the longest time.  Obviously, children usually do this in a swimming pool.)

And could "pular elastico" be "to jump on a trampoline"?  (A trampoline is a large, usually round, device which is springy like a mattress device.  When you jump on it, it pushes you up into the air.  You see them at school, circuses, etc.)
