After the sun goes down, kids can flicker their flashlights in this nocturnal game inspired by firefly communication.
To begin, players should pair off and create a flashlight signal (one short and one long flash, three short flashes and so on).
Partners must then separate and go to opposite ends of a large, open playing area (a park is ideal). Players are given one minute to scatter before they may begin flashing signals.
Each pair tries to reunite as quickly as possible by sending flashlight signals to partners. The first pair to reunite is the winner.
