Hide the Item

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Nathan Court

Have the children form a large circle, sitting down, facing inward.

Select one student to sit in the middle of the circle with their eyes closed. Everyone else in the circle needs to sit with their legs crossed and their arms behind their backs with their hands open.

The teacher will walk around the outside of the circle and place an object (eraser, keys, bracelet, etc…) in the hands of one student. When the teacher says so, the student in the middle opens their eyes and they get three guesses (strikes) as to who is holding the item.

After the three guesses, the student who is holding the item switches places with the student in the middle.

Perhaps provide a prize if the student in the middle guesses correctly.
