5 to 10 players.

Indoors; out of doors.

This is one of the traditional dramatic games, obviously an abbreviated form of Mother, Mother, the Pot Boils Over!

One player is selected for gypsy, and one for the mother. The others are children. The gypsy remains in hiding while the mother says to her children, pointing to the different ones in turn:—

"I charge my children every one
To keep good house while I am gone;
You and you, but specially you,
Or else I'll beat you black and blue."

The mother then goes away and blinds her eyes. During her absence the gypsy comes in, takes away a child, and hides her. The gypsy repeats this until all of the children are hidden. The mother returns and finds her children gone, whereupon she has to find them. When all have been found and brought back home, all chase the gypsy.
