All the children except one sit in a circle. This one thinks of

something and, standing in the middle of the circle, asks each one in

turn: "What is my thought like?"

Each one names some object, and when all have been asked, the leader

announces what her thought was and each in turn must prove the

resemblance between his answer and the thought. Whoever fails must pay

a forfeit.

Suppose the thought is a stove, and No. 1 says: "Like the sun." No. 2,

"Like silver," then the second time around No. 1 can say: "A stove is

like the sun because they both give heat;" No. 2 can say: "A stove is

like silver because they both shine when well polished," and so on.
