A simple, quiet game that's great for groups who know each other well. Using only their sense of sound, one player needs to figure out who's humming a little tune.

1. Have the children sit in a circle.
2. Select one child to be "it."
3. "It" stands in the center of the circle wearing a blindfold.
How to Play
1. When the blindfold is secure, the player in the center spins around.
2. "It" continues to spin until he/she decides to stop.
3. When "it" stops, he/she points at someone in the circle.
4. Whomever "it" is pointing to must begin to hum a little song.
5. "It" must guess who is humming. If he/she is wrong, they spin again to repeat the game. If "it" is right, then a new person is chosen for the center.
1. Instead of humming you can do animal sounds, truck sounds, dinosaur roars, ghostly sounds...any sound that allows one to disguise their voice.
Some easy songs to sing are:
- Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
- Happy Birthday
- I'm a Little Tea Pot
- The Wheels on the Bus
