All the children form a circle, joining hands. One is blindfolded,
given a cane, and stands in the middle of the circle.

The children march around her, going fast or slowly until she taps on
the floor three times with the cane and says: "Still pond, no more
moving." The children drop hands, and remain perfectly still, right
where they are.

The one in the middle feels her way toward the children, holding the
cane in front of her. The first child who is touched with the cane
must take hold of it. The blindfolded one says, "Grunt like a pig,"
and the one holding the cane must grunt, disguising her voice if
possible. If the blindfolded one guesses who she is, they exchange
places, and the game goes on as before, but if she fails, she has
another turn and may tell the player to "Bark like a dog" or "Mew like
a cat" until she guesses the right one.
