Hang a sheet or screen in a doorway between two rooms and cut six
holes, the size and shape of eyes, each pair a distance apart, in it,
some up high and some down low.

Choose groups of four to go behind the sheet, the rest of the guests
staying in the other room.

Three of the chosen four look through the holes at a time. The short
ones can stand on chairs and look through the high pair, while the
tall ones can stoop down, thus confusing those who have to guess who
the pairs of eyes belong to.

A short time is given for guessing each group, and then the next set
go out.

The guesses are written on slips of paper and after all the eyes have
been "examined," the correct list is read by one who stayed behind the
sheet all the time.
