Squirrel In Trees

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium

_10 to 100 players._

_Schoolroom; playground; gymnasium._

This game is very like Hound and Rabbit, but is a little less
exciting, and under some circumstances better adapted to very young

Most of the players stand in groups of three, with hands on each
other's shoulders, forming hollow trees. In each tree is a player
representing a squirrel, and there is also one odd squirrel without a
tree. The teacher or leader claps her hands, when all of the players
must run for other trees, and the odd squirrel tries to secure a tree,
the one who is left out being the odd squirrel next time.
