10 Jan Musical Blind Man’s Bluff
Blind Man’s Bluff was around a long time ago and children still love it today. All you need to do is to add a bit of music and it’s immediately party time. Feel free to make it last for 3 or 4 songs, or about 10 or 15 minutes.
— Let’s now play Blind Man’s Bluff. With this scarf, I will blindfold one of you who will be the wolf and I’ll put some music on. The other children will be mice and you’ll be dancing around the wolf. You must stay close by but avoid getting touched by the wolf. When the music stops, you must «freeze» like statues. Once the wolf has touched someone, he will have to feel the face of the person and try to recognize him or her. If the wolf gets it right, he or she who’s been caught will be the next wolf (the children often remove the scarf just after having caught a prey). Are you ready ?
— Yes !
— So, stand up everybody. Tom, come next to me, I will blindfold you. I will spin you around (a tiny bit) so that you feel slightly dizzy ! Let’s call for the music : «Music, music, music !» The little mice have to dance around Tom !
During the game, you will have to help the wolf catch a mouse (being blindfolded, he cannot move forward alone) and identify his prey ! You can choose a new song for each new round, and carry on the game while they still ask for more !
Children often take off the scarf straight away after having caught hold of their prey. Reiterate that they have to guess who it is first to avoid spoiling the game
