Magic Music. Although this is a game that per haps the mothers and fathers played when they went to kindergarten, it still causes much laughter and is al ways successful. One child leaves the room and the others decide upon something for him to do on his return. The musician regulates his playing, and the child must guide his actions according to the loudness or softness of the music. It is astonishing what different tasks are accomplished after a little prac tice, and the children's cries of "let me go out next" prove their enjoy " ment of "Magic Music." Guessing Holly Berries. For this game the child must put at on his "thinking cap." Hold a large i' ipray of holly in your hand and al 'k low the children to look at it for a few minutes. Then tell them to write their estimate of the number of holly berries on the branch. You might take a chrysanthemum also i and ask them to guess how many , petals in the flower. Great interest is It shown when the petals are counted. A Christmas Doll. f The idea of this game is to see who a can make the prettiest doll out of a I long smooth potato, two pieces of pretty colored tissue paper, some a small sticks for legs and arms, and 4 some pins. Or if you would rather pass clothes pins and let the children fashion dolls out of them, that will E also answer the purpose. Place all the dolls in a row when completed, and have the children vote for their favorite one. You will be surprised to see what ingenuous re sults the clever little fingers proedce. A Noisy Game. Yes, It is noisy, but the children have an Idea that "the more noise, the more fun." and what mother cares If "the roof come down" at a Christ mas party? After a child leaves the reooem. a proverb is chosen. One word of it is given to each child. If there are more children than words contained in the proverb, then two or more chil- I Sdren are given the same word. When the child outside the room returns, a leader counts "One, twe, three." At the "Three" all the children shout their given word. The child must guess the proverb. Santa Clauis' Grab Bag On the invitation ptate that each child is to bring something to the party that he or she no longer cares for. This article is to be in a neatly wrapped and tied parcel, so as to hide C Its identity. It is placed in a large bag, on the child's arrival. Each child then draws a present from the bag. Uproars of laughter follow the open ing of the packages, which probably will consist of peculiar articles of all sizes and descriptions. A Christmas Mix-Up. Provide the children with paper ! and pencil. Give them the following a list of words pertaining to Christmas. You see the letters are all twisted. It is their literesting task to straight. en them out. Key and list: c, 1. Christmau--AtchsmrL tl 2 Reindeer-Drlerene. 2. 8leigh-Ilegha. tl 4. Mistletoe-Etlosmte. i 6. Holly--Otylhl. t 6.
