PUSS IN THE CORNER.

Source: Games for Everybody






All the children except one stand in corners, or in any fixed stations
if there are not enough corners to go around. The one who is out
stands in the middle to represent "Puss." The players then beckon to
each other one at a time saying, "Here, puss, puss," and run and
change places with the one who is called.

Puss tries to get one of the vacant places. If she succeeds, the
child who is left out is "Puss," until she manages to obtain a place.
