The ring game
This is a fun group activitiy to play at your next birthday party. Eagle eyes are needed as one player tries to spot the concealed ring hidden in the other players’ hands.
Arrange the children in a circle with one child in the centre.
The children hold a circle of string onto which a ring is threaded.
The centre child closes his eyes and counts silently up to twenty.
While he is doing this, the children in the circle slide the ring from hand to hand around the string concealing it under their hands.
When the child in the middle has reached twenty, he opens his eyes and tries to spot which player is holding the ring.
If he guesses correctly, the player holding the ring changes places with him.
If not, the child stays in the centre.
