FINDING FLOWERS.

Source: Games for Everybody






A very simple game for children is one played like the old-fashioned
"London Bridge."

Two children with joined hands stand opposite each other, and the rest
form a ring and pass under the raised hands, while they repeat,

"We're seeking a pansy, a pansy, a pansy,
We've found one here."

As they say "here," the raised hands close around the child who was
passing by, and "Pansy" takes the place of the one who caught her, and
she names some other flower which is to be found, and the game goes on
as before, substituting that flower for pansy.

Then it continues until all the flowers are "found."
