PETER PIPER.

Source: Games for Everybody






This is an amusing game for children. A blackboard is needed upon
which the verse, "Peter Piper," etc., is illustrated or written so
that the words are mixed up and it will be difficult to point
out. Some older person will be needed to superintend the game.

One child is given a pointer and as the others sing, to any familiar
tune (Yankee Doodle, for instance):

"Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Now if Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where is that peck of pickled peppers,
Peter Piper picked?"

she must point out each word or drawing as quickly as it is sung.

If a mistake is made in pointing, the child takes her place with the
rest and another child is out. Each one is given a turn.

It is an achievement, if done successfully, and some suitable gift
should be given as a prize.





Next: LOOK OUT FOR THE BEAR!

Previous: BIRD, BEAST, OR FISH.
