Jeux d'enfants - Petite Suite

Petite Sweets
There is a set of 12 small piano pieces composed by Georges Bizet for piano duet (piano four hands) in 1871. 
  1. L'escarpolette (The swing)
  2. La toupie (The top)
  3. La poupée (The doll)
  4. Les chevaux de bois (The hobby-horses)
  5. Le volant (Battledore and shuttlecock)
  6. Trompette et tambour (Trumpet and drum)
  7. Les bulles de savon (Soap bubbles)
  8. Les quatre coins (Puss in the corner)
  9. Colin-maillard (Blind Man's Bluff)
  10. Saute-mouton (Leap-frog)
  11. Petit mari, petite femme (Little husband, little wife)
  12. Le bal (The ball)   

Bizet orchestrated five of these (Nos. 6, 3, 2, 11, 12) as the Petite Suite.  I don't think he had grand daughters visiting on Easter.
