Stuck Indoors? Play Blindman's Bluff!

Folks have played blindman's bluff for hundreds of years!

Too much winter break? Looking for something to do with your crew? Play a game of blindman’s bluff – much as kids have for years.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, an American suffragist and woman of letters, wrote about her girlhood in upstate New York in the 1830s. “The winter gala days,” she said, “are associated...with hanging up stockings and with turkeys, mince pies, sweet cider, and sleigh rides by moonlight.”

Stanton also played a crowd favorite, blindman’s “buff,"  “almost every evening during the vacation.” So can you!
