All students close their eyes. The activity leader must whisper into one of the children's ears: "You're mother hen". Now everyone shuffles around, with their eyes closed and their hands out. When they come in contact with another person, they must squeeze their hand and say "Cluck-cluck?". If the other person answers the same, they let go of their hand and keep looking and asking. Only the mother/father remains silent. When someone doesn't answer they have found the mother/father hen and they remain trapped by the hand, in silence. If anyone comes across that situation, they can enter the group. The game continues until everyone has been trapped. Lastly, ask them to open their eyes.
