Blindfolded capture

by Tess
(Concord, MA)

This is a game for at least six players and will be best played outside in a grassy area free of anything that could get tripped over. You will also need a blindfold. It's best for kids ages five to eight who enjoy being blindfolded.

Start off by picking one player to begin the game. Blindfold him or her and slowly spin them in a circle a few times so they lose their sense of direction.

Then, they have to try and catch someone with their arms outstretched in front of them. When someone gets caught, the they have to use their sense of touch to identify who it is. They only get one shot at guessing. If they are correctly identified, then their captive is now blindfolded and the game continues. If their guess is wrong, they must play again.

The game is done when everyone gets a turn being blindfolded.

Whenever you blindfold someone, make sure they can't see anything. Also, if any of the players have got glasses, then you'll want to take them when he or she has their turn being blindfolded.
