Frog In The Middle

_10 to 30 or more players._

_Parlor; gymnasium; playground._

One player is chosen for the frog, and sits in the center on the floor
with his feet crossed in tailor fashion. Where there are more than
twenty players, it is well to have at least two such frogs. The other
players stand in a circle around the frog, repeating, "Frog in the
sea, can't catch me!" They dance forward toward the frog and back,
tantalizing him and taking risks in going near him, the object of the
game being for the frog to tag any one of them, whereupon he changes
places with such player. The frog may not at any time leave his
sitting position until released by tagging another player.
