What To Do
This game is always a favourite with early years children.
It is great for learning to take turns, learning each other’s name, for the child to learn his whole name and to not be afraid when hiding alone. However, if the child is too afraid to hide underneath the blanket, you can change it to, ‘Who’s that hiding behind the blanket?’
The children sit around in a circle with their eyes closed whilst the play leader selects a child to sit in the middle of the circle. The play leader covers him over with the blanket. This player doesn’t need to close their eyes.
Everyone sings (to the tune of One little, Two little, Three little Indians): Who’s that hiding underneath the blanket?
Who’s that hiding underneath the blanket? Who’s that hiding underneath the blanket?
Let us guess your name!
Players then take it in turns guessing who is under the blanket and the person under the blanket replies in a disguised voice with either yes or no. The player who guesses correctly replaces the person under the blanket and the game starts again.
