This game can be easily prepared and is always a party hit for children’s birthdays or just for an afternoon when a few kids come together to paly but don’t really know what to do. First, the children have to work out among themselves who can be Bello, the dog, first. Approximately in the middle of the circle Bello squats down burying his head in his hands. The game leader gives a random object to the other kids to put it behind their backs. Then they shout: “Bello wake up. Your bone is gone. Bello is now on all fours and goes to another player and barks at him. He has three attempts to locate his bone, then another kid takes over.
The winner is the participant who needs the least attempts to find his bone. If several players have the same hit rate, you have to have a second ballot.
