This is a German game similar to "Duck, Duck, Goose"!

Game Instructions

The children sit in a circle and one child is the fox going around behind them. The fox drops a beanbag quietly behind one child. It's a surprise when the children turn around; for one to find the bean-bag behind him or her. The "bean-bagged" child then chases the fox, who tries to run around the circle and sit in the "bean-bagged" spot before being caught. An all time favorite!
