One child is chosen out. This one stands by a post or door with his
back to the other players. The rest of the children stand in a row at
the other end of the room or porch, as the case may be.

The one by the door counts 5, slowly or quickly, and then turns
around. While he is counting and his back is turned, the others take
as many steps forward as they can without being caught. If anyone is
moving when the player turns around, they exchange places, and the
game continues, the children advancing step by step toward the
goal. When one has reached the goal and touched it, he can go back
again and begin all over. The one who touches the goal the greatest
number of times just by stepping, and has not been caught, wins the
game.





Next: HE CAN DO LITTLE.
