Hide and Seek Games Hide The Thimble

( Hide and Seek, Hunting, Singing and Song )

One player is sent from the room while absent one of those remaining hides a thimble a cork or some small object which has been previously shown to the absent one. When the object is hidden the absent player is recalled and proceeds to hunt for the hidden object. While he is doing this the others sing or clap their hands the sound being very soft and low when the hunter is far away from the object and growing louder as he approaches it. The piano music is desirable but for schoolroom use singing is found to be more interesting for all as well as often more practicable. For very little children hand clapping is pleasing and sometimes more easily used than singing.
