Have you ever played 5 trees? It’s a hide and seek game where the players hide behind a designated group of trees.
How we play:
-We chose 5 trees that were in the same area and gave each tree a number (“the ash is 1, sugar maple is 2, white pine is 3, ash closest to maple is 4, red pine is 5″).
-The counter counts to 15 or 20 (depends on how fast the counter counts).
-The other players run and hide behind their choice of the 5 designated trees.
-Hide real well, you don’t want the counter to be able to see you!
-The counter finally turns around and calls out a tree number. If someone is behind that called tree, then they are out; players not behind the tree are safe to continue on.
-Counter turns back around and starts the counting again while the other players run to a new tree.
As more players become out, you can decrease the number of trees so they will have fewer trees to run to.
