Invitation To Drive

Category: GAMES FOR THE SCHOOLROOM
The house and garden described in Game No. 16, p. 32, will do quite well
for this also, but the children are to be at work instead of play. One
child may be fetching water, another minding the baby, and another
watering the garden or going errands. A gentleman (boy) comes to the
garden-gate (a space is left for the gateway), with 'carriage' and
'horses'; the 'carriage' is made in the same way as the 'coach' (Game
No. 24, p. 48), and has two horses instead of four. Gentleman walks
through the 'garden,' knocks at the door, and says:
Good morning, madam; if I may,
I'll drive your children out to-day.
I thank you, sir [beckons children to her]; come children!
[children run to her].
Such busy, happy children, they
Shall drive with me far, far away.
Oh, thank you, sir, 'twill pleasant be
To ride with you nice things to see.
Children enter carriage, waving hands to 'mother,' and saying:
Good-bye, dear mother, off we go,
The horses gallop fast, we know.
