The chooser moves around the circle, saying and pointing to each child the following..."

Game Instructions

"The child indicated at "blood" then must say the color. If "red," the chooser spells out "R-E-D" while moving 3 children down the circle. If "green" the chooser spells out "G-R-E-E-N" while moving five children down the circle. The child indicated by the last letter is the chosen one." -Mary Jane



Many thanks to Mary Jane Wilkie for sharing this rhyme, for explaining how to play the choosing game and for reciting it for us.
