Children use memory, concentration and listening skills when playing this game.
- No materials needed.
What to do:
- Sit the children in a circle. The first child begins the game by saying an activity that they could do at the park -
“I WENT TO THE PARK AND I CLIMBED A TREE.”
- The next child thinks of an activity that they would do at the park, then repeats the previous child’s activity -
“I WENT TO THE PARK, I PLAYED FOOTBALL AND I CLIMBED A TREE.”
- The third child continues –
“I WENT TO THE PARK, FED THE BIRDS, I PLAYED FOOTBALL AND I CLIMBED A TREE.”
- The game continues around the circle with each child trying to remember all the activities, which have been mentioned.
Hints and Tips:
- Instead of “I went to the park”, you could change the theme. For example, “I went to the zoo”, “I went to the beach”, “I went to the circus”. Each time the theme changes, the children have to think of various activities or things they would see, corresponding to that particular theme.
