This simple game can be played anywhere and will help your child practice their memory skills.
Each player starts off with the same sentence: ‘I packed my granny’s trunk and in it I put…’ The player completes the sentence with any object they can think of. For example, ‘I packed my granny’s trunk and in it I put a shirt.’
The next player repeats the previous sentence and must add a new object: ‘I packed my granny’s trunk and in it I put a shirt and a monkey.’ In turn, each player has to remember what the past players have said and add their own item.
For older players, you may wish to increase the difficultly of the game by requiring each new item to start with the next letter of the alphabet. For example alligator, banana, cupcake, etc.
