Which is better, blindfolding someone or having them close their eyes?
If someone does not like being blindfolded, asking them to close their eyes can be good if they can keep them closed. But you don’t have to worry about keeping them closed if you have a blindfold on. Another advantage is that if the blindfold is thick and dark, no light or shadows can creep in which can if eyes are just closed. Some say that a blindfold should stop you from opening the eyes, this could be uncomfortable on the eye lids. Better to have a thick dark cloth or if you like eye patches under the blindfold.
