All play: Sardines

new resourcesThis classic game is the opposite to Hide and Seek. At the start, 1 person is chosen to go and hide somewhere. The rest count to 100 and then must individually try and find the hider. If they do, they then hide with them, waiting for someone else to find them and squishing into the hiding spot like sardines.

Play continues until there is one seeker left who loses the game and chooses the next hider.

Works best in an area with multiple hiding spots – a great game for playing both indoors and outdoors.
