Hunts
First nine or ten girls form a ring and one stands in the middle. Then the person in the middle says a verse:
"Mrs Masin brok a basins.
How much will it be.
Half a crown put it down.
And out goes she."
While the person in the middle is saying this verse she points to a person for every word and the last person out must hunt the rest of the girls. Then the first person she catches must hunt the rest and so on.
