Title: Games children played a hundred years ago
Post by: jt72 on June 09, 2021, 09:30:57 PM
These games are in an old 1921 home educator book that I bought at a thrift shop when I was 16 years old. I have always collected books that I could keep for future generations. I lost many of my old books when everything in my home was bagged and left out. [I owe you one citigroup] History belongs to us all. Sad that today's generation have no idea of what  they've been robbed of by a lot of writers [who see's stealing other people's  writing as something they are entitled to do, as long as the wording is different. ] Anyway, that's how the games came to be posted here.

I will post a game every day. All the games will be over 100 years old. Enjoy!      jt

Have You Seen My Friend?

Here is a language-observation game which gives pleasure to the little people. A group of ten or twenty, more or less, join hands and circle about, the teacher  taking part with the children.

One says,"Have you seen my friend?"

At the question the children stop and listen for the bit of description, as:

"She is very small;she wears a pink dress and white shoes." The speaker tries to avoid looking at the one he is describing.

The children glance about quickly.  The first to discover the friend leads her to the questioner.   If quite correct, the finder has the next opportunity to inquire for a friend, as the group circles about him.

He may say, "Have you seen my friend?  He wears a blue waist, and a red necktie."

Children enjoy the crude little rhymes which they easily make.

One says:
"Have you seen my friend?
  She stands very straight;
  She comes every day,
  And she never comes late."

  "Have you seen my friend?
   She has big blue eyes;
   She has a pug nose,
   But she looks very wise."

A Tag Game

Tagging games are innumerable and varied.  Here is one that can be played in a schoolroom.  It calls for alertness and quick muscular response, and at the same time furnishing some physical exercises and merriment.

The group stands in a circle with palms upen upward, and held out toward the one in the center.   The player within the circle,with arms extended, palms downward,  turns quickly here and there attempting to strike the hands of a player before they can be withdrawn.

As soon as a hand is touched that person becomes "it";  the one in the center takes a place on the circle and the game proceeds as before.

Three children step to the front.  One stands with arms extended sidewise, to represent the see-saw.  One child takes hold of one of his hands, and the third child the other hand.   Then alternately stooping and rising, one going up as the other goes down, they say:

   "See-saw, up and down,
    I can see all over town."

Maze Tag

   A maze has always magical interest for children, and none the less so when it is a human maze of their own arranging.   Maze Tag is an excellent game for the gymnasium and for out-of-doors.

   The children form in lines of four,  their outstretched arms and clasped hands forming horizonal aisles,  up and down which a boy runs tagging a girl.

   From time to time the director gives the command, "Right!--Face!"   At the word "Face!" the pupils forming the maze let go of the hands,  wheel half way to the right, clasp hands with the ones at right and left,  again forming aisles, but at right angles to the former ones through which the runners must pass. This calls for bodily and mental alertness on the part of all.

   When the tagger catches the one chased both return to the maze,  each taking the place of fresh runners.

   As both boys and girls play, a boy chases a girl each time; and, in choosing a successor , the girl chooses a boy and the boy chooses a girl each time so that division of the evercise is on the wholesome principle of equal suffrage.

                                                        The Hand Car

   The pupils stand in twos, facing each other. Each takes hold of a handle of the imaginary car
on which they stand, then they work up and down alternately.  When the one pushes his handle
down,  the one facing him comes up.
