Watch out for the crocodile!

Every day, find one of the infos extracted from the new issue of the collection "The essentials of: 71 games for out and in", sold with the June issue of. Today, two games for 2-4 years.

  • An ideal game on the beach, but can also be done in a garden. Trace on the sand circles distant a few meters from each other. These are the shelters, the refuge islands: we need as many as there are children ... except for one of the players who will be the crocodile.
  • Every child goes into a shelter. The crocodile sails between them in the waters. At the signal, when you slap hands for example, all players must quickly move to another shelter, obviously released, without being devoured.
  • Whoever is caught takes the place of the crocodile.

The mystery bag

  • A very simple game. During a walk, pick up different objects that you will find with your child: a big pebble, a flower, a bark, tree moss, a brown bug, etc.
  • Once at home, put them in a big bag. Strip your child's eyes and have him digged. Will he guess what he has in his hand? Will he recognize the materials he touches?
  • You can add everyday items to make the game last longer.
