Remember the most objects correctly (without cheating!)
We've all got thousands of objects in our houses. Let's make use of them.
Before you start, please follow the game preparation instructions below
Decide the traymaster
Decide one person to prepare the game. Usually best for this to be an older child or an adult. You will need a tray or something flat to hold the objects and something to cover them such as a towel or tea-towel.
Collect 10-15 smallish objects
Small enough to fit on the tray. For example: •Pen •Pack of cards •A phone •Spoon •A pea •Nose hair clippers •Smelly sock •Keyring
Prepare the tray
Lay them on the tray so each one is visible but covered with a towel
how to play
Hand out paper and pens
Tell everyone how many objects there are and ask them to number their sheet of paper ready for their answers.
Reveal the objects
Remove the towel and pick up the objects one by one, saying out loud what it is.
Hide the objects
Place the towel back over the objects and start a timer for a 2 minutes (less if you want to be mean!)
Reveal the objects and pick them up one at a time and tell everyone what the objects are. If you wanted to make this educational, maybe each object has a story of invention?
