HUNT THE SLIPPER.
Source: Games for Everybody
All the children except one sit on the floor in a circle, with their
knees raised. The one left out brings a slipper, and handing it to one
"Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe,
Get it done by quarter-past two."
He walks to the other side of the room and in a minute comes back and
asks if the shoe is done. In the meantime the slipper is being passed
from one to the other, under their knees.
The child who is asked if the slipper is done says she thinks her
neighbor has it, the neighbor is asked and receiving the same answer
the one hunting it goes from one to the other until the slipper is
found. If it takes too long for him to find it, the slipper may be
tossed across the circle, so it will be easy to follow it up.
