Ships & Lighthouses
One cub is blindfolded and becomes the "ship".
One cubs becomes the "lighthouse" at the other end of the hall and beeps (makes a distinctive noise) to attract the ship.
The rest of the cubs spread themselves around the hall between the ship & lighthouse, and become "rocks". The lighthouse beeps as the blindfolded ship moves towards it, and if the ship nears a rock, the rock makes the sound of waves (shshshsh, shshshsh etc) so the ship can avoid it.
After a couple of tries, a second ship and lighthouse (with a different noise) can also be in play at the same time.
