Hunt The Shoe
The players seat themselves in a circle on the floor, having chosen one of their number to remain outside the circle. The children seated on the floor are supposed to be cobblers (A shoemaker who repairs shoes), and the one outside is the customer who has brought his shoe to be mended. He hands it to one of them, saying:
Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe; Get it done by half past two.
The cobblers pass the shoe round to each other as quickly as they can, taking care that the customer does not see which of them has it. When the customer comes to fetch it he is told that it is not ready. He pretends to get angry and says he will take it as it is. He must then try to find it, and the cobbler who has it must try to pass it to his neighbor without its being seen by the customer. The person upon whom the shoe is found must become the customer, while the customer takes his place in the circle on the floor.

Drop The Tissue
A ring is formed by the players joining hands, whilst one child, who is to drop the tissue, is left outside. He walks round the ring, touching each one with the handkerchief, saying the following words:
I wrote a letter to my love, But on my way, I dropped it; A little child picked it up And put it in his pocket. It wasn't you, it wasn't you, It wasn't you, but it was you.
When he says It was you, he must drop the tissue behind one of the players, who picks it up and chases him round the ring, outside and under the joined hands, until he can touch him with the tissue. As soon as this happens, the first player joins the ring, whilst it is now the turn of the second to drop the tissue.
