Get Outdoors: Blindfold Rope Trail

Tuesday 9th May 2017

This is a great activity to do on a camp or weekend away, but could also be completed on your meeting night. This blindfold activity is great at building trust, developing communication and encouraging children to use other senses in the absence of sight. It should be a lot of fun!

Equipment

  • Rope (lots of it)
  • Blindfolds

Preparation

This activity needs to be setup by leaders in advance, ideally so the children cannot see the trail before they start. Using trees, branches and other items the rope should create a trail through a wooded area involving obstacles like trees to go around, holes to avoid, hills to go up, obstacles to go over or under, etc.

Instructions

The children should get into pairs, with one of the children being blindfolded and holding on to the rope, their partner can help them by giving verbal instructions to guide them along the route. Once complete the pairs should swap over so everyone gets a go. Ensure close leader supervision along the trail at all times.
