Game to practice stealth - moving without being seen or heard
Torch if played in the dark
This game can be played with lots of players. Everybody needs to stand at one end of the playground. One person should stand at the other end, with their back to the rest of the players.
The players must try to creep up behind the child in front and touch them gently on the shoulder. The child in front can look round at any time, so the other players have to keep an eye out! If someone is spotted moving by the child in front they have to go back to where they started.
The person who touches the child in front on the shoulder first is the winner. They get to take over from the child in front and the game starts again.
Variation in the dark - catcher has a torch and has to catch the moving person in the torchlight
