Play the Hornie game: The Hornie game involves one child being "it" and chasing after the other kinds. The child, who is "it," clasps his hands together and points his thumbs out looking like the horns of a bull. As he catches kids, by touching them with his horns, they become his property and also clasp their hands and start to catch other children with their horns. The game is over when the last child is touched.
