Example text

The point is to get the most tricks. The game has a clear ending, namely when all cards have been turned over and the tray is empty. Even so, there are several factors in the organization that need consideration before the children are able to play the game independently. A limited number of pictures increases clarity. This keeps the game from slowing down and the players’ attention from wandering. A tray with panelled (raised) areas prevents the pieces from being mixed and at the same time shows whose turn it is, as the tray is easily passed on from child to child as a complete set, unlike when the pieces lie on the table.

Then this child spins the bottle, and so on. When there are no more cards in the holder the game is over. If the bottle is too difficult to handle the game can be simplified by the children taking turns to draw cards. Purpose: The children learn that not everyone necessarily gets the same number of turns because the order in this game is random (you can’t predict where the bottleneck will point). Besides it can be difficult to agree on who is being pointed at when the bottle is pointing at the space between two children.

At the same time the children are challenged to maintain attention on the two principal people: first the child who is to hide the clock and examples of games 37 then the child who is to find it. This game can be a precursor for playing hide and seek with people, where you replace the clock with one of the children, who hides – and later on with all the children hiding from the one child who is supposed to find the others. In this way you can simplify a relatively complicated game such as hide and seek by dividing it into several elements that are learned step by step.
