    Pin the tail on the donkey vocabulary

    I am making this game for an ESL activity in the classroom and I was looking for simple and correct vocabulary / sentences that the kids can use while playing.

    A little bit to the left, to the right, to the top?.

    These sentences are the instructions they will say to their blindfolded partners during the game.

    A bit higher
    A little bit lower
    Much higher
    Much more to the left
    A bit to the left
    A tiny bit to the right
    A lot lower
    Slightly further to the right
    Up a bit
    Down a bit
    Left a bit
    Right a bit

    We wouldn't really say "to the top" as you did in your post. "To the left/right" are fine, but with directions we use "up/down/higher/lower".

    Re: Pin the tail on the donkey vocabulary

    There used to be a game show on UK TV, I believe it was called "The Golden Shot", which worked on similar principles, with a (blindfolded) contestant firing a crossbow at a target (William Tell-style).

    The various directions there were, I believe:

    (up/down/right/left)
    (up/down/right/left) a bit
    Stop!
    Fire!

    Hope this helps
