Here is a list of multicultural games that all children can play. Games were invented in China and have been played by Chinese boys and girls on behalf of centuries.
Select captains, decide sides, and form into two lines in front of each other. Everybody in every line, take hold of each other's hands tightly and sing:
He stuck a feather in his hat,
And hurried to the town
And children met him with a horse
For the gates were broken down.
One player from the other side runs with all his energy throwing himself upon the hands of the children who had sung. The purpose of the game to being able to "break through," If winning, the two players whose hands were parted come to his/her side. The new side then sings. One from this cluster will attempt to break through the line and thus every other unless one side or the other is broken up.
Choose captains and decide sides. All crouch down in two rows twenty feet apart. Every child is given the name of some sort of fruit, such as apples, pears, peaches, quinces, or plums - all of which are general about Peking.
The captain on one side then blindfolds one of the children, as one from the other group go up and walks over to contact the blindfolded child - returning to their place amongst their own group and taking as closely as probable the position they had when the other was blindfolded. In case their friends are doubtful as to whether their arrangement is exactly the same, they all modify their position, in order to put off the one blindfolded from deducing who it was who left his place.
The covering is then detached from the blindfolded person's eyes. They should move toward the members of the conflicting team to look at cautiously the positions of the players or a hint of fault in the face or eyes of any of them. They can make faces to attempt to cause the guilty one to giggle. If their guess is right, he takes the position of the child who touched them. If they are wrong, they hang about on their side. One from their side is then blindfolded, and the entire process is repeated until one group or the other looses all its children.
