Who did that? The rulez!

1) Make two teams. Consider doing this with Pick your team with “Rock, Paper, Scissors”  and no kid will be picked last.
2) The two team face each other while one team starts and sends one kid to the middle.
3) Blindfold that kid or just make sure it can´t see the other team.
4) Now one kid from the other team will touch the blindfolded kid. The team will decide who is doing it.
5) It is ok to swith the positions to confuse the blindfolded kid.
6) The blindfold is removed and the kid goes to the other team and is trying to find out, who touched it. While doing this the kid is allowed to ask, make noises, funny comments or just looking angry. Whatever works to find out who touched it.
7) If the kid succeds the other kid (who touched) has to come and join the other team. If it does not, the kid has to join the other team.
8) The team with one kid left loses the game. It might also be good to set a time limit and determine the winner by the number of kids in a team.
