Blindmen's Huff!

Can anyone hear where we're supposed to go?

Purpose:

A fun blindfolded team race for an outing or a camp, where teams "race" across a course guided by sighted team leaders.

Materials Needed:

Enough blindfolds for at least four teams.
Two long lengths of rope.
Pegs.
A number of small prizes.

 

The Race:
Rope guidelines laid out at the start and finish of the course.   Teams of six or more people are chosen and all but one from each team are blindfolded.  The blindfolded teams are then lined up at the start line and each team forms a tight group by holding onto each other.  Each team has a sighted team leader and these are are positioned opposite their team at the finish line.  On a shout of "Go" each team must "race" to the finish line guided by shouted directions from their leader.

A second race would be to blindfold the team leaders, and have the balance of the teams shout instructions to guide their leader to the finish line!

Chaos will reign, but the race is exciting for all!  Repeat the race until all teams have had a chance and then run heats to determine an overall winner.  Award prizes as deserved including a consolation prize for the slowest or most fumbling team!  Have lots of fun!

God bless.
