Put Your Senses to the Test With a Blindfold and Strange Objects
This game is very simple and super fun for kids, or any age for that matter. Test your senses in different ways. We’ll start with touch, but you can also do this for just about every one of our individual senses. Maybe not sight, but at least the other ones.
What You’ll Need:
Pretty much no matter what sense you’re testing, you’ll have to blindfold yourself. Our eyes are too powerful!
How to Play:
Find some stuff around the house, and don’t make it too too gross, but throw in a ball of play doh and see how people react to it with their eyes blindfolded. Take objects you touch every day, and some that you wouldn’t go near without a blindfold on. Then simply blindfold a friend without showing them what you’ve chosen, and see how many they guess correctly.
This same procedure can be done with a blindfold and noise, to test your sense of hearing.
Or run some things under your nose to test your sense of smell. This one is great for someone who claims they can really cook!
And lastly, taste some things. Again, this is great for a cook, and will show the truth about how good they are in the kitchen. But please, make sure everything you’re giving them is edible and also, make sure they do not have any allergies when playing these games.
This game is great for kids, so take turns being the blindfolded one! But be cautious, if you’re playing with kids make sure it’s a rule that nothing too gross or dangerous goes into the bowl when you’re the one blindfolded!
