Guess The Corner

  • Pick one person from the class to be the caller. They have to be blindfolded or close their eyes.
  • Name the four corners of the hall / playground (the names can be anything, e.g. flowers, food…)
  • The rest of the class has 30 seconds to run to one of those corners.
  • The caller then shouts the name of one of the corners.
  • Whoever is in this corner is out.
  • Continue in this way until there is only one child left.

Little Owl suggested the following variation:

I’m a Brownie Leader, and our group play something similar, but instead of blindfolding a person, we use a die. The corners are numbered 1 to 4, and the children all run around the hall, on a blast of a whistle, they get into any corner. The leader rolls the dice. If a 2 is rolled, then anyone in that corner is out. If a 5 or 6 is rolled, everyone is safe, and the game continues until there is one person left. If the children need to let off a bit more steam, if a 5 or 6 is rolled, anyone that has been previously out can come back into the game, and then the leader/adult decides when to end the game.

Sobz also suggested that:

Get the class to do activities like hopping, crawling, lunges etc, to the corners for a great warm-up. Or if doing themes, pretending to be an animal etc.

Another visitor has tried the game and says:

We played this game in my class, only instead of being out, the children in the corner had to do an activity (10 jumping jacks, 10 sit-ups, 10 wall push-ups).
