Game Instructions

In this game, the children select a small object that can be held in the palm of one hand - like a marble. Then they form a ring and one person gets inside the circle. His/her eyes are blindfolded. The kids in the ring start passing the object to each other, while singing. At the end of the song, the blindfold is taken off and the teacher calls out, "This boy (or girl) can see!". Then the boy (or girl) starts trying to find the object (i.e. the kid in the center tries to guess which kid in the ring now has the object in his/her hand). When he finds that person, he joins the ring and that person gets blindfolded, gets into the center and the whole game begins again.
