Blind Bus Tour

This game tests the following skills: social, team building, trust, friendship, problem solving, communication, language, reading, visual skills, tactile skills proprioception, body flexibility

What you’ll need:
– Blindfolds (1 per person)
– Non-see through bag
– Pieces of paper with the name of an object written on each

How to play:

Step 1: Set up playing area beforehand so that everything is out of place. Hide all the objects and shut the door so no one sees inside.

Step 2: Gather all the players outside the area and ask the parents to blindfold their child and spin them around.

Step 3: Ask the players to form a chain, ensuring no knows knows in which order they are. The last person in the chain is the sighted man so remove their blindfold and cover his mouth, announcing your actions to the rest of the group.

Step 4: Lead everyone into the room and hand a piece of paper to the sighted person at the top of the line.  The sighted player must read the word and locate where that particular object is in the room. H

Step 5: The sighted player must then guide the chain by tapping on the right shoulder to turn right and the left to turn left. He is not allowed to talk.

Step 6: The chain of people must walk or crawl around the room being careful not breaking the chain.

Step 7: The player at the opposite end of the chain from the sighted player must find the object and pass it down the line to the sighted man, ensuring everyone feels it and is agrees on what it is.

Step 8: The sighted player is blindfolded, spun around and moved to the top of the line and the last player in the room removes his blindfold and away you go again. Ensure you move around the objects each around to confuse the newly blindfolded player at the top of the line.
