Drop The Handkerchief

Source: Games For All Occasions
Category: GAMES FOR TINY TOTS





A ring is formed by the players joining hands, whilst one child, who is
to "drop the handkerchief," is left outside. He walks round the ring,
touching each one with the handkerchief, saying the following words:--

"A tisket, a tasket
A green and yellow basket,
I wrote a letter to my love,
But on my way, I dropped it;
A little child picked it up
And put it in his pocket."

He must drop the handkerchief behind one of the players, who picks it up
and tries to catch him before he can run around the ring and jump into
the vacant place. As soon as this happens, the first player joins the
ring, whilst it is now the turn of the second to "drop the
handkerchief."
