Note: Jones: "'Turn the pan' is a 'house game,' that is, a game you can play in the house when you can't go outside. It's from Dawson. This game is similar to spin the bottle, except that it is played with a tin plate spun on the floor, in the midst of a ring of children. The one who is 'it' must give a pawn, that is, be chosen to recite a poem, sing a song, act like a chicken, jump like a frog, etc."
