How to play the game called ``Fruit Basket''
Each child is given the name of some fruit, such as apple, pear, peach,
grapes, apricot, etc. The children are seated in chairs arranged in
the form of a circle. One child remains standing in the center with
no chair to sit in. This child, for example, might be called ``Apple.''
He would call `` `Pear' and `Apricot' change.'' Immediately the two
children who have been given the names of
these two fruits change chairs, only to be intercepted by the child
bearing the name ``Apple.'' if he is quicker than the other children.
This is kep up until every child's name has been called. Occasionally,
for a change, the child in the center of the ring calls ``Fruit Basket
turns over.'' At this signal every child has to change places and there
results a mad scramble. This game gives the children a chance to become
familiar with the fruits which they should know.
