These various activities are aimed at promoting children's overall development such as, logical thinking, attentiveness, being able to focus on the task and solving problems, children's collaborative abilities and motor skills. These activities are fun and can be used at parties or in camps. You can modify these activities according to the environment, children's age and interests.
These activities can be in a form of competition with silly and fun prizes for winners. Children are divided into 2 teams. For younger children it is recommended to have a grownup leader, who can record their answers (not help).
You can also simply complete these activities as one group.
Let's play detective
A detective has to be attentive to details and to be able to solve problems using existing clues.
Children are divided into 2 teams. For younger children it is recommended to have a grownup leader, who can record their answers (not help).
1. Changes in the room:
Both teams are asked to look at the room for 10 sec. After that, children should leave the room or keep their eyes shut for a few moments, while an adult removes or adds objects from/to the room. Children are allowed to look at the room and each team should record changes in a notebook. Adults compare both teams' answers; the team that gave more correct answers, wins.
2. Guess the sound:
One team is asked to turn away. A member of the opposite team hits an object with a stick. The other team is supposed to figure out what object it was. Then teams switch places. The team that gives the most correct answers wins.
3. Guess the profession:
A number of objects which could belong to a particular profession (a doctor, a gardener, etc.) are put on the table and covered with a blanket. The cover is raised and children should guess a profession of the suspect. The team that gives the correct answer first wins.
4. Guess who:
An adult is gradually describing a person present in the room. Children should guess who this person is. The team that gives a correct answer first wins. This activity can be repeated a few times.
