What You'll Need:

  • A Blindfold

How to Play:
  1. Have the birthday child be the "blind man," and blindfold him or her.
  2. Have the other children join hands and form a circle around the blind man.
  3. The players should then start moving in a circle around the blind man while singing:
  4. "Three Blind Mice, Three Blind Mice;
    See how they run! See how they run!
    They all ran after the pirate's wife,
    Who cut off their tales with a carving knife.
    Have you ever seen such a sight in your life,
    As Three Blind Mice?"

  5. When the verse stops, the blind man points in the direction of a child and guesses a name.
  6. If the blind man guesses correctly, he or she trades places with the other child.
  7. If not, the child steps into the circle with the blind man so the blind man can try to catch him or her.
  8. Once the blind man catches the player, he or she must try to identify the child by touching his or her face, hair, or clothing.
  9. If the blind man guesses correctly, they switch places.
  10. If not, the blind man stays in the center for another round.
