Finding The Thimble

Source: Games Without Music For Children
Category: GAMES FOR THE SCHOOLROOM





This is a favourite game and can be played with very little noise. At
home, all the children would go out of the room except the one who
remains behind to hide the thimble, but when played in the school or
classroom, it will be sufficient if six children are sent out.

The thimble is to be placed where it can be seen, the children are then
called in, and the one who has hid it says:--

Try to find the thimble out,
Use your eyes and look about,
Look before and look behind,
And when you the thimble find,
Just sit down.

As soon as any child sees the thimble, he takes a seat and remains quite
still until all the seekers have seen it, and each in turn has sat down.
Then the child who first saw the thimble takes it from its
hiding-place, and has the privilege of remaining behind to hide it next
time. Different children should go out each time, so that all may have a
turn.
