Moon And Morning Stars

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

_5 to 20 players._

_Out of doors._

This game is played when the sun is shining. One of the players is the
moon, and takes her place in a large area of shadow, such as would be
cast by a large tree or a house. As the moon belongs to the night, she
may not go out into the sunshine.

The other players are morning stars, and as they belong to the
daylight, their place is in the sun. The morning stars dance around in
the sunlight, venturing occasionally into the shadow where the moon
is, sayin

"O the Moon and the Morning Stars,
O the Moon and the Morning Stars!
Who dares to trea
Within the shadow?"

The moon tries to catch or tag them while they are in the shadow. Any
star so caught changes places with the moon.

This game is played by the little Spanish children.
