Kim’s game

What to do with this activity?

Playing ´Kim´s game´ is a good way of learning to remember what you have seen. It also helps your child´s memory skills – which is useful for all learning.

Put 10 things from around the house on a tray and ask your child to look at them for a few seconds. Then take them away and ask them to call out what they remember. Another way of playing the game is to cover the things, take one thing away and ask the child to spot what is missing. You can put more things out as they get better.

  • Why am I doing this?

    One of the ways children learn is through play. A child who is playing is refining learning skills that continue to develop during childhood and beyond. Indoor and outdoor games are a great way of practising some of the reading, writing and number skills your child has learned.

  • How can I do more?

    Encourage your child to teach you a game – letting them teach you something is empowering for your child.
