Do This Do That

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium

_10 to 60 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium; schoolroom; parlor._

All the players stand facing one of their number who is the leader.
The one who is leader assumes any gymnastic position or imitates any
action, at the same time saying "Do this!" and the others immediately
imitate. Should the leader at any time say "Do that!" instead of "Do
this!" any player who imitates the action performed must be seated, or
pay a forfeit, whichever form of penalty has been decided on at the
beginning of the game. Three mistakes of this kind put a player out of
the game, even when forfeits are the penalty.

The leader may choose any gymnastic positions that are familiar, such
as chargings, head bendings, trunk bendings, arm movements, knee
bendings, hopping, jumping, dancing steps, etc.; or imitate familiar
actions such as hammering, sawing, washing, ironing, sewing, stone
cutting, shoveling, riding horseback, etc.
