How to play the Stray Dog Game
Two players are blindfolded. One is a stray dog and the other is the dog catcher. The kids that are not playing make a spread out circle around the two blindfolded players. The dog catcher proceeds to try to catch the dog, and the dog tries to fool the dog catcher. They may both make noise and give false clues to each other. The rest of the children may either give fake clues, real clues, or simply help contain the dog and the catcher and not say anything. Any way you choose to play will be entertaining. If the dog is caught, someone else gets to be the next dog. If the dog is not caught, someone else gets to be the next catcher. One child should only play in one position for two rounds. After two turns, someone else gets to play.
