How To Play Swing The Cat

I have nooooo idea why, but our youth group loved this game.

Basically, it involves a designated person standing in the middle of the room, blindfolded. They are the swinger of the cat. We turned off the lights in the room and shut all the doors... make sure there's nothing breakable in the room!

The swinger in the middle uses a helicopter motion to tag the people who are all running around the room screaming their heads off...

Now, I really don't know why this game works as it is so simple and really just like chasey, but hey, they loved it!

Materials Needed

A stuffed cat or other furry creature with a tennis ball in its head, that is attached to an old stocking
