Children must listen to their teammates and instructions to be able to retrieve more balls than the other teams!

Number of participants: 5+
For: For kids between 7 and 12 years.
Intensity level: Medium
Preparations: none
Equipment: Blindfolds (scarfs, old cloths, etc...), Balls (10+)
 

Find a wide open space outside and scatter different sized balls throughout the entire area. Divide players into 2 or 3 even teams.  Choose one player from each team to blindfold and cover their eyes with the blindfold or scarf. The remaining players will remain at their home base and will have 5 minutes to direct their blind teammate to the balls.  Once the blinded teammate has found and picked up a ball, the team must then direct that player back to the home base.  The goal is to collect as many balls as possible in the 5 minutes allotted.  The team who has collected the most balls at the end of that time limit will win.

If there is a tie, both teams will race once more for one ball.  Once the teammate is blinded, two balls will be placed an equal distance from the home base lines.  The teams will then direct their blind teammates once more to collect one ball and back again.  The first team to cross the line with the last ball will win the race.
