BLOWING THE FEATHERS.

Source: Games for Everybody






The children are seated on the floor, around a sheet or
tablecloth. This is held tight by the players about 1 1/2 ft. from the
floor, and a feather is placed in the middle.

One is chosen to be out, and at a given signal from the leader, the
feather is blown from one to the other, high and low, never allowed to
rest once.

The player outside runs back and forth, trying to catch the
feather. When he does succeed, the person on whom it rested or was
nearest to, must take his place.
