Visualization Game

Materials

  • Assorted objects
  • Tray
  • Tea towel
  • Small sack
  • Paper and pencil
Directions
  1. Collect ten to twenty small common objects, e.g., safety pin, spoon, eraser, watch, comb, button, ring, thumb tack, clothespin, key, cork, stamp, etc.
  2. Place the objects on a tray.
  3. The players have one minute to look at the tray and then it is covered with the tea towel.
  4. The players must then write down all the objects they can remember.
  5. The winner is the one who has the most correct items.
  6. This game can also be played by using the sense of touch.
  7. Place the objects in a small sack (burlap is best) with only enough room at the opening for a hand to go through.
  8. Each player has one minute to place his or her hand in the bag and then try to recognize as many objects as possible.
  9. Again, the player who has written down the most correct items is the winner.
