For this game, you will need a big circle of chairs and a scarf you can use as a blindfold. All kids form a circle. Important is that there are no obstacles in the middle. Now, one child gets blindfolded while a second child helps him to navigate to a chair, which is placed somewhere in the circle so that the blindfolded kid can sit down as well. If the child is now positioned correctly, the navigating child says: Sit down. – This takes a lot of trust because the blindfolded child cannot be sure if there is a chair behind him indeed.
Instead of verbally navigating the child you could agree on certain sound signals. For example, clapping the hand once means: go to your right. Clapping the hand twice means go to your left. Continuous clapping means to turn around and around until the clapping ends. Instead of clapping you can use instruments as well.
