Paying Calls

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





Directions.--A ring of children form the 'house' (see Frontispiece,
and description of same on p. 31) or a classroom may be used for it. A
few chairs and a table should be placed in the 'house,' and there should
be a 'mother' and 'children.' A 'lady' (represented by a little girl)
comes and knocks at the 'door,' and the 'mother' opens it.

VISITOR
How do you do, dear Mrs. Brown?
I've called upon you going to town.

MOTHER
I'm quite well, thank you, Mrs. May,
And glad to see you this fine day.

The visitor then walks in and speaks to the children one by one; they
should answer without hesitation. Children are generally very shy and
awkward when addressed by strangers, but they should be encouraged to
reply with confidence and ease. Perhaps these little games may help to
give them confidence.

The game 'Paying Calls' might appropriately be followed by 'Afternoon
Tea'; both these are played with great glee by the little girls.
