ACKNOWLEDGMENT







Acknowledgment is hereby made for contribu-
tions from the bulletins and party books pub-
lished by National Recreation Association, as
well as the spirit and enthusiasm with which
we have been embued by attending Institutes
held by the field staff of National Recrea-
tion Association.

Further inspiration has been gained through
the many Recreation books by other authors
that are to be found in private and public
libraries. Much time has been spent in prep-
aration, selection, and adaptation from the
above mentioned sources to meet the needs of
our own staff and leaders of the Statewide
Recreation Project of Work Projects Adminis-
tration.

F OREWO RD


Social Recreation is mass participation
in harmonious activity. Activity of
this type, planned to require little or
no equipment may be easily presented by
the leaders.

The purpose of this bulletin is to sup-
ply Recreation leaders with a variety
of games, Folk dances and party plans
which have been found successful in
many Recreation programs among aggrega-
tions of diversified groups throughout
the State. The programs listed have
been used in the smallest crossroads
settlements as well as in our largest
cities and have been met with equal en-
thusiasm of participation.

The content of this bulletin,therefore,
is a compilation of material taught,
with program arrangement in the choice
of social and quiet games, relays, mus-
ioal mixers, Folk and square dances. It
represents a sequence which has been
successful from point of view of active
and quiet progression,timing and enjoy-
ment.

"Play for the adult is re-creation, the
renewal of life; play for the child is
growth, the gaining of life."
Joseph Loo







SUGGESTIONS FOR THE RECREATION LEADER


Typos of gamos and arrangement of material are important but by far, the most
important factor is the loader.

A leader at all times must. radiate enjoyment and enthusiasm. These are conta-
gious and the players reflect the spirit sot for them by the leader.

A good leader must like his work, plan and practice his program diligently and
have the desire to help others to a richer and fuller life through the wholesome
use of leisure time. In helping others the leader invariably becomes a stronger
and bigger person. Sometimes a very shy person will develop into an outstanding
leader, gaining poise and self-confidence through the constant desire of bring-
ing happiness to others.


Suggested "Heolps" for the leader:

1. Understand throughly what you want done and mako your directions brief and
clear. Demonstrate the action when possible.

2. Stand where you face everyone and speak so you can be hoard but do not shout.
If the group is large use a whistle but use it only when necessary. Expect
the players to listen. '

3. Give instructions as simply as possible and give as few as the game will
warrant,

4. Go into tho first game without hesitating and arouse group interest from
the very start by choosing a familiar game or one that requires simple ex-
planation. More difficult material may be presented after the players have
gained confidence in themselves. This is especially true of adults who have
had little play experience.

5. Play the game until it is almost at its best; then change to another. Change
the game at the height of enjoyment so as to eliminate the possibility of
even one player losing interest because a game is played too long.

6. Play the game yourself. Do not stand by passively waiting after it has
begun. Stay in the game actually playing or watch with keen interest.






- 2 o


PROGRAMs

1. An enthusiastic loader.

2. A planned successful programs of games and folk dances.

Plan the program in detail and list each game to be played
if the correct rotation so as'to progress from one game to
the next without .an award pause. A written program is
essential even though the program is for a very short per-
iod.

In making your plan, consider the following points:

(a) Have a group of active gamos alternate with quiet (or
less active) and singing games.

(b). Make your formation follow through -- a circle game
after a circle game and a line game after a line game
etc.

(c) If a party and refreshments are to be served,build up
to a climax just before the intermission with a par-
ticularly good game.

(d) Following intermission, build program with active,
quiet, singing etc., and finish with a musical game.

(e) Have an abundance of material. It is far better to
omit soine numbers than to run short.


Following is a plan for an evening's program,

1. Pre-party(get acquainted)aotivity or Community singing
2. Musical Mixer
3. Relay or active game
4. Quiet game (pencil and paper)
5. Semi-active
6. Musical
7. Song
8. Refreshments
9. Quiet
10. Active
11. Stunt or song
12. Musical


NOTE: All party plans in this bulletin are arranged according
to the above planned program,

2. Pat your program across naturally.

53 Do not make people run or engage in too
strenuous programs..

4. Never be a school teacher on the recreation
floor ,The pleasure of the individual is the
thing. What difference does it make if a per-
son raises the right hand instead of the left
hand when the program is for fup and not for
demonstration.

5. One very important principle is to have some-
thing for people to do the minute they arrive
for a program.

6. Avoid making a fool of anyonea as in all prob-
ability it .will. gio- the person a footing of

3.. Thin Daughter Whistle
4. Beautiful Daughter A-a-a-a-a-ah (fine high voice)
5. Handsome Prince A-ha

Narrative

There was once a king with a terrible temper. (Gr-r-r-). He had three
daughters. The oldest was very fat (Ka-plunk); the second was exceedingly
thin (Whistle); but the youngest was very beautiful (A-a-ah).

Now in a nearby country there lived a handsome prince (A-hal). One day he
cane to the palace of the king with a terrible temper (Gr-r-r). "I have
come," said he, "to seek a wife among your daughters." First he was pre-
sented to the oldest and, well, the heaviest daughter (Ka-plunk). "She
would eat too much," said the handsome prince (A-hal). Then appeared the
daughter who was very thin (Whistlo). She did not please him either, and
ho said,"But I hoard that you had a young and beautiful daughterl"(A-a-ah).
This displeased the king with a terrible temper (Gr-r-r-). Said he, "You
can't rob my nursery for a bride" "Well," came the reply, "I cannot love
your oldest daughter (Ka-plunk), and I don't like your thin daughter
(Whistle)."

Just then on the stairway appeared the youngest and most beautiful daughter
(A-a-ahl). Rapture filled tne heart of the handsome prince (A-hal), and he
cried, "I will take your youngest daughter" His words greatly angered the
king with a terrible temper (Gr-r-r). "Call out the guards," he thundered,
"and turn out this upstart of a prince" (A-hal). With her he rushed out.
When the royal court reached the door, all they could see was a cloud of
dust raised by the hoofs of the galloping horse. (Galloping sounds which
gradually die away).

So ends the romantic -ale of the king with a terrible temper (Gr-r-r), his
fat daughter (Ka-plunk), his thin daughter (Whistle), the youngest and most
beautiful daughter (A-a-ah), and the handsome prince (A-hal),with the gal-
loping horse (sounds with feet).

side a troo. oH can go to any troe and the squirrel who is occupying

rel before he reaches safety the fox becomes the squirrel and is now
chased by the squirrel who was the fox.

hands and form a small circle. This is the tree. The fourth player
stands in thie center and is the squirrel.

must be named the same thing in- the line. When the captains finish,
they are to stand at the foot and on signal from loador(such as whistle
or hand clap) all players snap into formation showing which they repre-
sent.

Following aro the motions:

Hunter: Stand erect with hands on hips.

Rabbit: Place thumbs in oars and spread fingers wide(reprosenting long
ears).

Gun: Point loft arm and make motion as if pulling 'trigger with
right index finger.
The leader keeps score (1 point is counted for winning line) and the grading is
this way -
The Hunter is greater than the Gun because he can shoot the Gun.

had no seat originally one player is left out and must remain there
during the next march only. The person reaching a chair first is the

9A. MAGIC "READING THE NUMBER"

Formation: Group seated about room two extra players, one theoloader and
the other the confedorate.

Action:

The "mind-roador" is sent out of the room and one of the group selects a
number. The "niind-roador" is called in and promptly identifies the right
one as it is called.

The secret is: The first digit of the first number called out tells where
the number selected will appear on the list. Thus, if twenty (20) is the
number selected, the assistant might call out 57, 2, 69, 118, 20 and the
mind-reader would promptly say 20 as it ,was the fifth number mentioned.

Variarion: This can be haIrder to decipher if the number is never called but
instead, still using the above method, the "mind-rcador"may arrange to let
the designated number be twice the numabsr solocted. In this case forty (40)
would be the number selected as it is twice twenty (20).:

The mule he tends to his own biz

(iusic: Auld Lang Syne See pag 60 )


L smilo is ouito a funny thing
It wrinkles up your face
And when it's gone
You'll never find it's secret hiding place
But far more wonderful it is,
To see what smiles can do
You smile at one, he smiles at you
And so one smile makos two.


(2)
He smiles at someone, since you smiled,
And then that one smiles back
And that one smiles until in truth
You fail in keeping track,
And since a smile can do great good
By cheering hearts of care,
Lot's Siilo and Smile and not forget
THAT SMILES GO EVERhYWHERE.


NOTE: Have group see how many smiles they can get from others while singing sec-
ond verse.

CHARADES IN THE MODERN HAJIER

Formation: Divide the group into two teams.

Action:

One player leaves the room or goes to a distant corner where the conversation can-
not be overheard. The two teams select phrases to act out, instead of words, as
in the old game. The phrases may include book or movie titles, advertising slogans,
old sayings, or the names of songs or plays; "Fifteen Men on a Dead Man's Chest";
"tone with the Wind"; "The Cowboy's Lament"; and "The Pause that Refreshes" are


"SMILE" SONG







- 54 -


some good examples. As many phrases as there are players in the group are select-
ed and each phrase is written on a slip of paper. The phrases should include words
of action, rather than description so that they may be pantomimed without diffi-
culty. For younger boys and girls it may be better for the leader to compile the
list himself the first several times.

When the selection of words has been completed, the two groups come together. All
the slips are put on the table face downward, but each team's is kept separate. A
timekeeper is chosen. One of the players now takes a slip from the other team's
pile, reads it to himself, shows it to the group that selected it, and acts out
the words one at a time for his own group to guess. He may not speak, but may nod
his head or point or perform any action which will help him explain the phrase to
his team mates. The words in the phrase may be acted out in any order. Suppose he
chooses "The Pause that Refreshes." He might walk briskly across the room, stop a
minute, and then walk again. Someone will probably say "stop"; but the person do-
ing the acting shakes his "no." The word is an easy one, however, and soon some-
one else shouts "pause." The "acting" person nods his head, then pantomimes the
word "refreshes" by taking a drink. If they koop guessing "drink," "thirsty,"
etc., the actor must try another approach. He signals to the group to start again
on this word. Then he lies down on the floor, closes his eyes for a moment, stands
up and expands his chost to show how good he fools. Someone says restedd" and that
gives the clue.

THE MYSTERIOUS ADDITION

Formation: Group seated--one person acts as leader. Blackboard necessary.

Object of Game: The leader writes the answer to the problem, which is the sum of
five lines of five figures, when he knows only the first line. This looks compli-
cated and is always impressive when done with finesse.

Action:

Leader asks one of group to write the first line of figures and use any figures he
wishes, but the last number on the right cannot be either zero or one. For in-
stance, suppose the chosen number is 86215. The leader immediately says the answer
of the completed problem will be 286213, regardless of what the other four lines
will be. To make sure the answer will be right and more mystifying, the leader asks
another person to write the second line of five figures, and just for good measure
the fourth line. The leader writes the third and fifth lines, and must be certain
to write figures which will make a total of 9 when added t o the line directly above

Solution: Example

The leader determines the answer in the following manner: 86215 (1)
The first number of the total is always 2, the next four 35206 (2)
are the same as the first four numbers in the original 64793 (3)
line, and the last figure is determined by subtracting 82143 (4)
two from the last figure on the right. 17856 (5)
286213'
