blind story time

a few ideas for using blindfolds in school at story time, having children listen to a story without seeing the pictures helps to develop imagination skills.


1. have your story book and objects mentioned in the story. Have the  objects hidden. At story story time have the children sit in a circle and blindfold them. As you read the story pass around the objects

2. have a story book, and have children sitting at their desks with pens and paper, and blindfolds on. Read the story and have them draw pictures. \

crawling around feeling for objects


this is in Russian where a blindfolded child crawls around feeling for paper, a good game for tactile skills and spatial awareness


our second blindfold video from Russia is a relay race where all but one in each team is blindfolded and has to guide the blindfolded people one by one to the other end
