Game of the Week is taken from 101 Drama Games and Activities.
The group sits in a circle. A volunteer sits in the middle and is blindfolded, with a bunch of keys placed just in front of them. Someone else is selected to creep up and try to steal the keys, returning to their place with them. Whoever is chosen must first sneak around the outside of the circle, re-entering by the space they left. If the keeper hears a sound, she points in that direction. If she points at the thief, that person returns to their place and someone else has a go.
If the thief manages to take the keys and return to their place, they become the new keeper. The game encourages concentration and sensory awareness. It is important that every member of the group maintains silence. A variation is to allow more than one thief at a time. I learnt this one at cub scouts, but I still love playing it!
Come back for a new Game next week!
