Throwing The Handkerchief
Source: Games Without Music For Children
Category: GAMES FOR THE SCHOOLROOM
The children stand in a ring, or sit round the room, one child standing
in the middle. The handkerchief is thrown from one to another, and the
one who is 'out' tries to find a child with the handkerchief in its
hand. As soon as he can do this, the child who was caught with the
handkerchief has to stand in the centre, and the other one sits down, or
stands in the ring, as the case may be.
As the game begins, the children say:--
The handkerchief is thrown,
Find quickly where 'tis gone:
From you to me, from me to you,
To keep it long will never do.
