Game description

To begin with this game, all children build teams of 2 each. One person gets blindfolded. The objective for the other child is to get this blindfolded kid, safely to its destination. Make sure you lay out the course before the game starts. Once the game has started nobody is to talk anymore. The seeing child navigates the other child by signals which are predetermined. For example, clapping once means turn right, clapping twice means turn left and so on. Once the blind kid arrives safely at its destination, the roles are changed. The objective of the game is obvious: learning to trust one another. Gradually, you can implement more obstacles to make the game more challenging. However, the rules have to be followed all the time.
