All children sit in a circle. One child lies in the middle and has a blanket over him. Then you put the "meat bone" on top of the child. One of the children is chosen to take the bone and hide it behind his back. Then all the children say: "Hands behind your back - Little dog, someone has taken your meat bone!"
The dog then has 3 tries to find the one who took the bone from it. The one who has the bone is then the next to be the dog and so the game continues.
