Stealthy Thieves

Required:

  • Keys or other common household objects

How slippery are your kids? Here's a fun game to test their ability to be exceptionally quiet!

In this game, one person sits in a chair with a key chain full of keys or another clangy item placed on the floor underneath. The "keeper of the keys" then closes his or her eyes and listens carefully for the sound of an approaching "thief." When the keeper hears a suspicious sound, he or she tries to thwart the attempted act by pointing in the direction of the sound. If the pointing is accurate, the thief is eliminated from the game. If, however, the thief can remove the keys without getting pointed at, the mission is a success, and a new keeper takes the chair.

Maybe you can have too many cooks in the kitchen, but you can't have too many thieves in this activity, especially thieves who can work together to distract the keeper of the keys!
