Game: Hedgehog or Caterpillar Cocoon

  • Print

Equipment: a blanket


Girls skip, run, jump, walk etc around until the leader calls "hedgehog". At this they all crouch on the ground with their heads covered with arms so they can't see. When all eyes are covered the leader places a blanket over one girl and when she is fully covered says "hedgehog". This is the cue for everyone but the covered girl to stand up and guess who the hedgehog (covered girl) is.

Variation: Caterpillar Cocoon

Leader calls out "Caterpillars down!" then covers one girl with the blanket.  Then she calls out "who's in the cocoon?" and the girls all guess.
