Guess the most objects correctly without passing out from the smell
We've all got socks. Some are clean and some are smelly. Some are striped and some are spotty. But I bet you've never played with them!
Decide the sockmaster
Decide one person to prepare the game. They MUST wear a sock on their head. Usually best for this to be an older child or an adult.
Collect the socks
Everyone can help with this bit. Find an assortment of 3-7 socks. Make sure each one is different so you can tell them apart.
Collect the objects
Find 3 small objects per sock. For example:
Prepare the socks
Put 3 of your objects in each of the socks, then tie each sock so the objects don't fall out. You could either knot the end or find an elastic band or hair band. It helps to number the socks or give each one a name so you know which is which.
how to play
Pass the socks round
Let each person or team feel each sock for about a minute (or less if you're feeling mean!)
Write down the guesses
Number a sheet of paper (or use the names of the socks) and write down your guesses for each one.
Empty the socks
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?
