This great game is a quirky twist on Pin the tail on the donkey. Youngsters will have heaps of fun as they put their senses to the test whilst blindfolded. It can also be a a great way for kids to build teamwork skills and practise following instructions.
Top tip!Encourage the kids to get creative by drawing and colouring their own witch faces for the game!

A piece of sticky tack
About the activity
Find or draw a picture of a witch and stick it to the wall – the side profile of a witch with a big nose will work best! One player is then blindfolded and handed a small piece of sticky tack (the ‘wart’), before being spun around several times and left facing the picture. They must then try to stick the wart to the end of the witch’s nose, whilst still blindfolded. How close will they get it?! Mark the point where each player sticks the wart with a small cross – whoever is closest to the end of the witch’s nose wins!
As a variation of the game, divide the kids into pairs. On each pair’s turn, one player is blindfolded and spun around in the middle of the room. Their partner then calls out directions, guiding them until they accurately stick the wart to the end of the witch’s nose. Time the pairs as they play – the fastest pair wins the game!
