Game description

In this game, the participants have to show their sense of rhythm and tact. While all kids sit in a circle, the objective is to always keep up the rhythm. They can clap their hands, snip their fingers or clap on their thighs. As soon as everybody got the rhythm, a child, which was pre-decided, asks: “Who stole the cookie from the tin?” – Important that he keeps up with the beat. Then he asks: “Did Hans steal the cookie from the tin,” never missing a beat. The respective kid answers. “Who, me?” This kid now names another kid by saying, “It was Peter who stole the cookie from the thin.” – Between every answer, no beat is to be missed. People who miss their calling, have to leave the game or he might get a nickname.


All people who get through their calling correctly win.
