How to play Piggy wants a signal?

Begin by selecting a space or object to be the base. All the children will gather at the base at the start of each game. Select one  of the children to be It and let the others know they will be hiding. The child who’s It should close their eyes and begin counting to 20. While this is happening, all the other children should run and find a hiding spot in the building or in the garden. When It gets to 20, this one should begin searching for the other children. To help find them, whenever It calls out “Piggy wants a signal”, all the hiding children need to do the noise of a pig from the location they’re at. After making the sound of a pig, if a child wants to move to a new location, they are free to do so.

Whenever It finds a child, that child must return to the base and wait for the others. Once all the children have been found, the game is over and a new It is chosen.
