Should you tie or hold the blindfold?
Sometimes you might decide not to tie a blindfold over your child’s eyes but hold it at the back. I’ve previously done this when playing pin the tail on the donkey and once during a trust walk I did.
The advantage of holding the blindfold, as opposed to tying it, is that you can use darker cloths with more folds you have your child’s eyes in total darkness. This will ensure that the person wearing the blindfold won’t be able to see.
The disadvantages are that you can’t spin them around (for games like Pin the Tail on the Donkey) when you have to continually hold the blindfold around their head.
