juegos infantiles tras bambalinas
Explanation:
Hacky sack (o footbag) se juega dominando una "pelota" que es en realidad una bolsa llena de frijoles, no existe en países de habla hispana tal vez debido a su novedad, así que yo lo dejaría como "juegos infantiles". Lo más cercano que conozco se llaman "dominadas" o "dominar la pelota" que se juega con un balón de fútbol en toda américa latina. Aquí va un resumen sobre la historia del juego.
Where did footbag come from?

Footbag is a modern American sport. It was invented in 1972, when John Stalberger met Mike Marshall, who had been kicking around a hand-made bean bag. John had recently had knee surgery and was looking for a way to work on his flexibility, and he instantly took to the game and become good friends with Marshall. They called the game, "Hack the Sack."

Stalberger and Marshall soon became enthralled with the game, which Marshall had been hoping to promote with the general public. The two designed a product, which they trademarked the "Hacky Sack", and began putting together a plan to market the product and the sport.

Tragically, Mike Marshall died of a heart attack in 1975, at only 28 years of age. Stalberger, determined to realize their vision of footbag as a sport, continued to promote the product and the game. He formed the National Hacky Sack Association along with the help of many others. He ultimately sold the rights for the Hacky Sack footbag to Kransco (operating under the Wham-O label), which also manufactered the Frisbee flying disc.

a game using 2-inch diameter woven bean-filled bag


Explanation:
The participants stand around in a circle and keep the hacky sack (bean bag) in the air by kicking it upward with their feet or knees, sometimes kicking it toward another player. The object is to keep it in the air without using one's hands. (I don't know whether this "sport" exists in any Spanish-speaking country and, if so, what the name would be.

juegos de cascarita


Explanation:
In Mexico there was a time when this game became popular, I think it was on Mexico '86 World Cup. In Brasil, soccer players use this game to strengthen their skills. They call it "cascarita" because it´s like soccer in miniature.

Hope this helps!

Explanation:
no se puede traducir el nombre de un juego que no existe para nosotros. Se podría dar una explicación como 'nota del traductor', pero no queda natural incluirla en el texto.

juego de pelotita


Explanation:
busco la mesma palabra en italiano...

There must be a "street" term used by kids, otherwise use "hacky sack" or "footbag"

I will let you know if I find the street name for it in Italian.

Rafael, how about closing your question somehow. People where very helpful!
