The Bone

Form a circle with students sitting down. Pick one child to be the dog. The dog sits in the center of the circle on a chair, blindfolded, guarding his or her “bone” (placed under the chair). The rest of the students are silent. The leader chooses one student by silently pointing to them. This person must try to steal the bone without getting caught. The dog has to bark and point in the direction from which s/he thinks the stealer is approaching. The dog only gets three chances to bark. If the stealer makes it back to his or her spot before the dog catches him or her, the stealer gets to be the dog. If the dog catches the stealer, the game continues with the same dog and the leader chooses a different stealer.
