Key Game

A game in which children need to pick up the keys without the blindfolded child hearing them.


blindfold (necker), chair, set of keys


Beavers sit in a circle with a chair in the centre. Under the chair place a set of keys. Choose a Beaver to sit on the chair wearing the blindfold. Silently choose another beaver to attempt to steal the keys and return to their space without being heard. If the blindfolded Beaver hears them they must point in their direction. If successful they wear the blindfold. As this game requires all Beavers to sit quietly it is best played in short bursts - but you'll need to note whose turn it is to be 'on'!
