PIN DOLL BABIES.

Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Any number may play this game. If there are men and women it is more
amusing.

Divide the company into groups of five or six. Each group sits around
a table upon which are pins, needles and thread, scissors, for each
player but no thimbles, and strips of tissue paper, colored and white.

The hostess hands each guest a large wooden clothes-pin which is to be
dressed as a doll, using the tissue paper for dresses and hats.

All begin to work at a given signal and the hostess allows a certain
length of time for the dressmaking. There is much merriment, as it is
nearly as awkward for the ladies to sew without a thimble as it is for
the men to use a needle.

When the time is up, these doll-babies are arranged in line for
inspection. Two judges are appointed to decide upon the best and the
worst. Prizes are awarded.
