Ring Hunt Game

I always love family games, especially those silly little fun ones. A nice sweet game that is age appropriate for most is Ring Hunt.

Someone is picked to be "it" and that person will stand in the middle of a circle of people. You will also need a long piece of string or yarn. Cut a piece long enough to make a large enough circle that the "it" person can stand in, before you tie it slide a ring onto the string, now tie. Lay the string circle on the ground and have the "it" be in the middle. Now with the other people in a circle around the "it" person, have "it" close their eyes and count to 10, all while having the other people passing the ring around and hiding it in your hands. Now the "it" person needs to find the ring, the player has three chances to find the ring. If the "it" person finds the ring, players switch places, but if they loose they have to keep going till they find it.

This game is fun especially with the little ones, plus it gives you a valid excuse as to why you need to buy more jewelry... right?!


  1. I will have to keep that game saved for later use

  2. This sounds like fun! I don't think I've heard of this game before.

  3. It's like an organized game of "keep away"! I love it!

  4. Sounds like a fun game, especially for little girls. I've posted a FMM.

  5. Great game! I think we will be doing this tonight.

  6. I'll have to store that in things to do when Peanut gets a little bigger.

  7. You always have games I've never heard of. I love it! :)

  8. Cute game! Isn't funny how games that simple are used at the college level in a different way. In one of my graduate classes we had to stand in a circle holding hands while stepping through a hula hoop and passing to the next person without letting go of our hands... it work well for developing team work!!! This is a great way to teach young children team work too!!!
