This game is very simple and another of the girls favourites when we're out at a play ground or park. You can use anything that is lying around that you can collect a few of (sticks, leaves etc...) and often the collecting part becomes an entirely separate activity of its own.
* any found items you can find a few of in the natural environment.
for example: sticks, leaves, stones/rocks, empty cicada or snail shells, gum nuts, seedpods, different types of grasses, flowers, shells, gravel, bark.
First make groups of your found objects. Today we collected sticks, stones and leaves for our game.
You can then use your objects to create sequences, as simple or as complicated as appropriate for your child.
Bubble (5) is quite good at this game and can solve pretty complex sequences independently, for Squeak (3) I make the patterns much more simple and we verbalise their order together out loud.
We often end up with sequences that go on forever! Well, almost :)
