Hot Boiled Beans and Bacon

Kid’s Party Games

This is a game for young children. Some small article is hidden in the room, while the little on who has to find it is sent outside. This finished, the players call out together: “Hot Boiled Beans and Bacon; it’s hidden and can be taken!” The little one enters and begins to hunt about for the hidden article. When she comes near to its hiding-place, the company tell her that she is getting “hot”; or if she is not near it she is told that she is “cold.” That she is “very hot” or “very cold,” will denote that she is very near or very far away from the object that is hidden, whilst if she is extremely near, she would be told that she was “burning.” In this way the children can be interested in the game by being allowed to call out whether the little on is “hot” or “cold.”

Bean Bag

Children Playing Games

All stand in a line except one who is the leader who stands a short distance opposite the line.

The leader throws the bean bag to the child at the head of the line who returns it to the leader. The leader throws it to the next child, who throws it back to the leader, and so it is throw back and forth to each child in turn. Any one in the line who fails to catch the bag must go to the foot of the line.

If the leader fails to catch the bag he must go to the foot of the line and the one at the head of the line takes his place.
