How to get an entire group of 4 and 5-year-olds to close their eyes for a game of Sardines.

In this game, “It” is supposed to hide. After a count-down, the rest of us are supposed to look for “It”. In theory, each person who finds “It” quietly hides with them until the last person has joined the crunched-up bunch.

Reality check. What really happens: when the first Pre-K child finds “It”, he or she screams and everyone runs to the same spot. OR No one was actually covering their eyes and everyone knows where “It” hid.

The rules may change as we play, but the fun is still the most important part of the game.
