How, When, Where

One of the players leaves the room while the others select some word with two or three meanings, which is to be guessed. Suppose the word 'trunk' is thought of. When the player is summoned in he asks each one in turn 'How do you like it?' The answers may be 'full of clothes,' 'when the outside is brown,' (meaning a tree trunk), 'shut up in a cage,' (referring to an elephant's trunk). The next time around the question is 'When do you like it?' and the answers may be, 'When I'm going away,' 'When I'm in the country,' 'When I visit the Zoo.' The last question is 'Where do you like it?' and the answers may be 'In my room,' 'In the woods,' 'On the animal it belongs to.' The questioner must try to guess the word from the various answers. If he succeeds, the person whose answer revealed the word must leave the room, but if he fails, he has to guess again.

Lubin Loo

This game can be played by any number of children. The players form a ring by clasping hands; they then dance round singing the first verse, which after the second verse serves as a chorus.

Here we dance lubin, loo, Here we dance lubin, light, Here we dance lubin, loo, On a Saturday night.

While singing the second verse, the children stop, unclasp their hands and suit their actions to the words contained in the verse.

I put my right hand in, I put my right hand out, I give my right hand shake, shake, shake, And turn myself about.

Each child while singing this first stretches her right arm toward the center of the ring, then draws the same arm back as far as possible, next shakes or swings her right hand, and when the last line is sung she turns right round. The children then once more join hands, and commence dancing, at the same time singing the chorus. The game proceeds as before until all the verses have been sung. Here are the remaining verses:

Here we dance the lubin, loo, Here we dance lubin, light, Here we dance lubin, loo, On a Saturday night.

I put my left hand in, I put my left hand out, I give my left hand shake, shake, shake, And turn myself about.

Chorus.

Here we dance lubin, loo, etc.

I put my right foot in, I put my right foot out, I give my right foot shake, shake, shake, And turn myself about.
