Final game - HEARING - Place a set of keys (or bells) into a tin or glass jug in front of a blindfolded child. The blindfolded child should have some balls to throw. The other children try to creep up and take the keys. If the blindfolded child hears them he can throw a ball in that direction. If the creeping child is hit, they should freeze where they are. Could also be played outside using water pistol instead of balls.
