Puss In The Corner

Source: Games For All Occasions
Category: GAMES FOR TINY TOTS





This game is really for five players only, but, by a little arrangement,
six or seven children can take part in the fun.

Four players take their places in the different corners of the room, and
the fifth who is Puss stands in the middle. If a greater number of
children wish to play, other parts of the room must be named "corners,"
so that there is a corner for everyone.

The fun consists in the players trying to change places without allowing
Puss to get a corner. When they leave their corners, the player in the
centre tries to get into one of them.

When the centre player succeeds in getting into a corner, the one who
has been displaced has to take his place in the middle of the room.
