“What kinds of games can we play with the little toys we got over the holidays?” Over the next 3 posts, we will show you 3 simple (old-favourite) games that children like with small toys or objects. ____________________________________________ A childhood favourite game from my babysitting days! Materials A small toy or object. Directions This is game for 2 or more people. Have person A pick a small object or toy. Hide it in a designated area (such as your living room or playroom) while person B either has her/his eyes closed or has left the room. (Or maybe both!) Have person B open her/his eyes and look for the object. When she or he is getting closer to the object person A says, “Warmer”. As they are getting more close, “Getting hotter” etc. As they move away, “Colder”, “Getting cool” etc. until the object is found. Switch roles and repeat. Purpose Re-imagining items Safety Notes Small objects and toys can be a choking hazard. Be sure to keep them out of the reach of children 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things in their mouths.
