Play Sardines

Directions

This game is a variation of "hide and seek." It is best played outdoors. "Sardines" can be played with two or more players.

  1. One player is "it" and he or she goes off to hide while the other players count to 100 by 2's or 5's.
  2. When the other players have finished counting, they call out, "coming ready or not!" (or something similar to warn the player who is hiding).
  3. Everyone goes off to find "it," seeking separately.
  4. As each player finds "it," he or she hides in the same space, until finally, all the players are squeezed into the hiding place.
  5. The first player to find "it" becomes "it" for the next game.
