JULY FOURTH.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR SPECIAL DAYS.





Aside from the enjoyment of firecrackers, etc., there are a few games
to amuse the children on this day. If a party has been planned for the
Fourth, the rooms should be appropriately decorated for the occasion.

As soon as all the children arrive choose two leaders, who in turn
select sides. A line is marked on the floor and the sides stand on
each side of this boundary line. A few feet from the line on each side
is placed an American flag. Any flag can be made to stand up by
placing the end of the stick securely in the hole of an empty
spool. Each leader guards his own flag.

The children endeavor to secure their opponents' flag. If a leader
tags anyone who crosses the boundary and comes too near the flag, that
child is out of the game. However, if one does succeed in capturing
the other's flag, and carries it over the boundary into his side, that
side is victorious.




Next: FLAGS OF ALL NATIONS.
