BUTTON, BUTTON.

Source: Games for Everybody






All the children sit in a circle with hands placed palm to palm in
their laps. One child is given a button and she goes to each in turn,
slipping her hands between the palms of the children. As she goes
around the circle she drops the button into some child's hands, but
continues going around as long after as she pleases, so the rest will
not know who has it.

Then she stands in the middle of the circle and says: "Button, button,
who has the button?" All the children guess who has it, the one
calling out the correct name first is out and it is his turn to go
around with the button.
