Blind Man's Buff
Those who want to make a great noise
will have a chance now.
One player is taken into the middle of the room,
where a handkerchief is tied over his or her eyes.
He is then turned round three times
and told to catch whom he can.
The other players pass to and fro,
passing as near to him or her as they dare,
while the person who is blindfolded
rushes in all direction,
clutching at those who seem nearest.
When he or she succeeds in catching someone,
He or she must guess who it is,
and if correct, the boy or girl must change places.
If he or she cannot guess,
He or she must let go and try again.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
A tortoise is a silly thing
We know for we've got two
To eat and sleep the livelong day
Is all they care to do.
And when we tried to make them race
It wasn't any fun
They tucked their heads inside their shells
And simply wouldn't run
