Materials: An object to hide
How To Play: Players sit in a circle. While everyone else’s
eyes are closed, the leader hides an object. When the signal is given,
players begin looking for the object. Whenever a player finds the
object, he returns to the circle, says, “Huckle buckle beanstalk,” and
sits down. The game is over when all players have found the object and
have returned to the circle.
Variations: Before the object is hidden, the leader
announces a number between 1 and 10. Players count off up to that
number repeatedly, around the circle, and each player remembers her
number. As players return to the circle, they say “Huckle buckle
beanstalk ___,” saying their number. Players stand in groups whose
numbers add up to the one announced at the beginning. The game ends
when everyone is in a group.
