A blindfolded player uses sound over sight to find other players in this traditional children's game.

What you'll need

  • Blindfold
Variations:

Play without the verbal clues the person who is It walks around the yard feeling for the players. The hiders must keep their feet in the same spot, but they can move the rest of their bodies in an effort to avoid getting tagged. The biggest challenge for the hiders? Don't giggle!

How to play

  1. Play this game in an easy-to-monitor area and be sure to clear away any toys or other objects the blindfolded player could trip on. (Supervise carefully.)

  2. The player who is It wears the blindfold. While he or she spins in place five times, all the other players run around the yard looking for a good spot to hide.

  3. When It finishes the fifth spin, he or she yells, "Stop," and all the other players must freeze in place.

  4. It then begins to search for the other players by yelling "blind man's..." All other players must yell "bluff," although they can disguise their voices. The searcher uses the vocal clues to track down the other players.
