We use the game when we’re waiting. It’s a great way to pass the time if you’re on a bus or at the post office. It’s our version of I Spy, we don’t know very many letters yet, but colours work for us nicely!
What you’ll need
- Your Eyes
- Your Mouth
- We chose Bury Market for the purposes of the blog (so many bright colours!) but anywhere will do
- “I’m looking at something Green”
- “Is it… That bush?”
- “That bush is green, but it’s not what I’m looking at”
- “Can I have a clue?”
- “It’s something you’re wearing”
- “My jumper!!”
This is a simple word game that uses so many great skills. Careful listening, noticing, talking. Then when we introduce clues the game gets more complicated. It’s easy for Small to follow a clue, especially when I make it easy! But creating his own clue is really challenging. He has to remember what it is he’s looking at and then find a way to describe it that I will understand without giving the game away. Letting other people know what he’s thinking is a massive skill for Small (and everyone!). Games that involve talking are a great way for us to practice it.
