Four in One Bag Game

I totally love this game, I first saw something similar at a craft fair last year and realized how easy and inexpensive it was to make. It will also entertain a child for a while, on a trip or during quiet time, so how much better could it get?


Supplies:


Fabric and ribbon or string for your bag (or you could purchase a small bag) you do not need much fabric, my bag only measures 5" by 6"


Miscellaneous items (my bag contains 20 items, I would suggest at least 15 items)


Games you can play:


Memory- let your child see all the contents and then take one away, see if they can remember which item was taken away


Create a story- let your child create a story using the contents in the bag


Matching game- None of my items are alike but this matching game is to see which items are similar (ie: animals, foods, buttons, etc)


Color/shape game- match the items of the same color in the bag and let your child identify the color or shape.

I really love this idea! Its so simple, and my kids would get into it I think. Perfect for a doctor waiting room, or while I'm practicing for worship team at church. Thanks for sharing!
