BLIND MAN'S BLUFF
This game doesn't need much preparation because all you need is a blindfold and an open space to play. You need at least six players.
First, choose one person to be IT. Blindfold this person and spin him or her around two or three times while the others scatter around the area. Then they have to try and catch someone by touching them.
When someone is caught, they have to guess who it is. If they are right, then the caught player is now IT. If they are wrong, then they have to find another player. The game can go on until everyone has a turn to be IT.
Make sure that the kids are okay with having their eyes covered. Be sure to supervise carefully so no one goes out of the game zone.
SNIFF AND TELL
For this game, you will need a blindfold, and different household items with different scents. For example, soap,shampoo, some grass,various food items, and even a pair of stinky socks. There's no limit to how many items you use,so let your imagination run wild.
To play, everyone takes turns being blindfolded and the other players hold each smelling item one at a time up to their nose. They have to try and guess what each item is by sniffing it. They get one point for each correct guess.
At the end of the game, the one with the most correct guesses wins.
You'll get some great reactions with this game. It's perfect for a class party. Place different food items into separate containers. You can use foil baking pans. Some examples include spaghetti, potato chips, gelatin,oatmeal, and even pet food. Use your imagination when choosing the food items, the crazier,the better. You want to have a total of six containers.
To play, ask for six willing participants to come over and sit in a row of seats facing the audience. Ask each volunteer to remove the shoe and sock from one foot. Then blindfold all the volunteers. Have six more people come and assist the players. They will each need a pencil and paper to use during the game.
Place a container of food down at the first player's feet. Have her stick her foot inside and try to identify what the food is. When she has a guess, have her whisper it to her partner who will write it down for later scoring. Then move the first container down for player two to guess and give the first player the second container of food to identify. Keep it going like this until each foot has had a chance to feel every food. Then give the contestants washcloths and towels to clean their feet.
After you've cleaned up, share the correct foods in each container and have the helpers tally up their partners score so you can announce a winner. They get one point for each correct guess. The one with the most correct guesses wins.

COTTON BALL GAME
This cotton ball game is great for all ages of kids and a lot of fun to play.
What you need:
Two large bowls or buckets, two chairs, a large ladle, bag of cotton balls and a blindfold.
How to Play:
This is one of those hilarious blindfold games and quite frustrating to watch.
It's best to let one person at a time play as it's just as much fun to watch.
Place the two chairs opposite each other about 2 meters apart.
On one chair place a bowl of cotton balls and on the other an empty bowl.
Blindfold the chosen player, give them a few twirls and then place them in front of the bowl of cotton balls.
Using the ladle, they then have to try and scoop up a cotton ball (or more) and carefully carry it and place it in the bowl on the opposite chair.
It's quite funny to watch as the cotton ball is so light that they are never sure if they are carrying anything or not.
Set a time limit of one minute so that everyone gets a go.
The winner is the person who transferred the most cotton balls.
