in this listening game people are divided into groups and given an animal. When everybody is blindfolded they have to find their group only by making the sound of their animal. No talking or seeing allowed. In this example it is played in pairs. I think the best way would be to blindfold and disorientate the players before telling them their animal. So they don’t know where they are or anyone else in the group or who else is in their group.
the skills you can work on are
- listening discrimination
- learning to discern different sounds from background noise
- social skills
- personal space
so get some blindfold cloths and take the kids to the yard today
