This blindfolded game of tag is as entertaining for the onlookers as it is for the hunter and its "prey".

What you'll need

  • 2 blindfolds
  • Small grassy area

How to play

  1. Get everyone into a circle, with players about an arm's length away from one another. Because this game relies on one player hearing another's movements, it is best played on grass, and everyone should keep very quiet during each round. Pick one player to be the fox and another to be the rabbit. Bring them both to the center of the circle and blindfold them. If young children do not wish to be blindfolded, they can just close their eyes.

  2. Explain that the fox is hunting at night and is listening for his prey, the rabbit. The rabbit, naturally, is trying to avoid the fox. The other players are trees that will guide the rabbit or fox gently back into the circle when either wanders off the playing area. Turn the rabbit and fox around several times to slightly disorient them, then let the hunt begin. Allow a little time for this game every player will want a turn at being the fox and rabbit.
