An Excerpt:  "[Pg 33]GAMES FOR CHILDREN

 ACTING PROVERBS
The best way to play this game is for the players to divide themselves into two
groups, namely, actors and audience. Each one of the actors should then fix upon
a proverb, which he will act, in turn, before the audience. As, for instance,
supposing one of the players to have chosen the proverb, "A bad workman quarrels
with his tools," he should go into the room where the audience is seated,
carrying with him a bag in which there is a saw, a hammer, or any other
implement or tool used by a workman; he should then look round and find a chair,
or some other article, which he should pretend requires repairing; he should
then act the workman, by taking off his coat, rolling up his sleeves, and
commencing work, often dropping his tools and grumbling about them the whole of
the time. If this game be acted well, it may be made very entertaining. Sometimes the
audience are made to pay a forfeit each time they fail to guess the proverb.[Pg
34]BLIND MAN'S WAND
This is another way of playing Blind Man's Buff, and is thought by many to be an
improvement on that game."
