A child is chosen to be the "dog." He or she sits in a chair with their back to the group. An eraser or another object is put under the chair. That is the bone. While the dog is turned around with his or her eyes closed someone sneaks up and steals the bone and hides it somewhere on his person. Then everyone would sing "Doggy, Doggy, where's your bone? Somebody's stole it from your home." Then the "dog" must guess who it might be. The "dog" has three chances to guess who took it. Sometimes it can be left under his or her chair. If the "dog" guesses right then he gets to do it again. If he guessed wrong than the person who had the bone got a turn as the "dog."
