The following are the games I play in Summer.
Games. How to play them.
Hide and go seek. When I am playing hide and go seek I say
"Little Minie,
Turn a penny inside out."
Whichever person "out" falls on has to hide. Then we keep saying the rhyme until only one boy remains. Then he looks for the other boys and the boys who are found join in the search. I also the rhyme,
"Ena , Dena, Diana, Doe,
Catch a […] by the toe,
If he squeels let him go,
Ena, Dena, Diana, Doe."
