Kids Party Games
Fun games like this blindfolded relay make great kids party games. The silly blind navigators also make it so much fun to watch!
This relay is one of the best team building games for kids because children must communicate effectively with their blindfolded teammates. The kids also learn to build trust with their teammates who guide them when they are blinded.
Learning to build good communication skills teaches kids to have patience, choose clear and specific wording,and see situations from another person's perspective.
When building trust with others, kids learn that the world is a safe place and that they are free to experiment with the environment which enhances their experiences.
Another benefit from this blindfolded relay is that the kids get to exercise, pumping healthy oxygen through their growing little bodies!
