Puss In The Corner

Source: Games Without Music For Children

This game may be played by four children, each standing at a corner,
with one in the centre for 'pussy,' or it maybe played by a ring of

The child who is 'pussy' stands in the centre of the ring, and the
others say:--

Pussy cat, pussy cat looking so spry,
Might very soon catch us, if she would but try.

Two children then beckon to each other and exchange places. (If a ring
is formed, the two children should come from opposite sides of it.) As
they are crossing, 'pussy' tries to catch one of them; if she succeeds,
the child who is caught stands in the centre, and the old 'pussy' takes
her place in the ring or corner.
