Grandmother's Trunk


Directions

  1. To begin the game, one player says, "I went to my grandmother's trunk, and I found a (coat)."
  2. The next player says, "I went to my Grandmother's trunk, and I found a (coat and hat)."
  3. The players continue to take turns, on each turn repeating the words already mentioned and adding a new word to the list.
  4. Start a new game when the list becomes too hard to remember.
  5. If you'd like to reinforce alphabet skills and make the list easier to remember, require the players to add words in alphabetical order (antique, book, coat, and so on).
