- 6 helmets/hard hats (get them at a thrift store)
- 6 “on my head” items
- duck tape
- blanket/tarp/large towel
- tape each item onto a helmet/hard hat
- cover all of these with a blanket/tarp/large towel so no one can see them
Choose 6 kids (and/or leaders) to play. Bring them to front of room. Each person will play their own round.
- Player 1 covers eyes while you put one of the helmets/hats on their head. Depending on the weight and shape of the item, they may need to hold the helmet/hat on their head. Make sure they don’t touch the actual item.
- Give the player one starting hint, e.g. “This item is found in a toy aisle,” or “This item is found outside,” or “This item has something to do with sports,” or “This item came from a kitchen,” or “This is an item from school,” etc. (Giving a First Hint is a middle school adaptation.)
- Players have 2 minutes to ask ten “yes/no” questions of the full group. If a middle school player is having a hard time, give them periodic hints. Have a leader or kid be the time-keeper.
- If you use thrift store items, players who guess correctly get to keep “what’s on their head.”
Things to use:
- small appliances
- anything, really
