HAVE YOU SEEN MY BIRD TODAY?

PLAYERS SIT IN EITHER A ROW OR A CIRCLE. AN "IT"
IS CHOSEN. "IT" MENTALLY CHOOSES A COLOR AND THEN
PROCEEDS TO ASK A PLAYER, "HAVE YOU SEEN MY BIRD
TODAY?" THE PLAYER SAYS YES AND "IT" ASKS, "WHAT
COLOR WAS IT?" IF THE PLAYER ANSWERS WITH THE SAME
THAT "IT" HAD MENTALLY CHOSEN, "IT" EITHER THROWS A
HANDFUL OF GRASS OR A SMALL CUP OF WATER INTO THEIR
FACE (WHAT YOU WILL USE IS DICTATED BY THE WEATHER
CONDITIONS). IF THE PLAYER DOES NOT SAY THE SAME
COLOR THAT "IT" HAS CHOSEN, "IT" MUST ASK EACH
PLAYER UNTIL SOMEONE SAYS THE RIGHT COLOR. THAT
PLAYER THEN BECOMES "IT".
