Two children .are each-provided with, a knife and *t a signal they place as many peanuts as they can on the blade of the knife, and carry it to the empty bowl with one hand. Depositing the peanuts, they return for more. Each child is allowed three minutes. A score is kept and the one who has the larg- eg£*number of peanuts credited to his nolle wins the prize. -' :; =?C ! 3K 5K 3v-- ! *£ I-.T=- ' Iftretty pictures taken from maga- ziBJes, advertisements and discarded picture books are cut op into several pieces and placed into envelopes- A good idea is to write the same number on the ttck of the envelope and all pieces belonging to one puzzle, so that if a piece gets mixed with the otters it can be readily returned to its own set. Each child is handed a puzzle, and as/roon as lie succeeds In placing the pieces in their proper position he is given credit for it by the score keeper, and receives another puzzle to -work with. The one -who succeeds in patting together the most pictures in a suited time receives a weH- eamed prize. ·'-- Snowballs. " This is an amusing game. Snowballs made of cotton batting and covered with white tissue paper and a - small basket are required. The play- i ers stand about eight feet from the j basket. Th one who tosses the most halls into-'tlie' basketds the prize -winner. Each.' chill" might be given three snowballs to start -with. A Christmas Spider Web. Take as many balls of twine as there are children expected at "the party. To one end of each ball attach ajcard bearing the child's name'and tir the other end an inexpensive gift. Twist the twine around the different objects-an,the room, -Give each^cbild the twine and card bearing his name. At a signal all begin to unwind the entangled web- Great is the fan and loud the exclamations when the ?oung people arrive at the end of their string and find a gift awaiting them. A Pop Corn Party.
