Is it rough? Maybe a little spiky? No? Oh, it’s bumpy! What is it?
This is the perfect game for rainy days, road trips, or just plain keeping them busy. It works great because if I am cooking, answering a quick email, or even sewing all I have to do is reach my hand in and guess what he has found. It keeps him happy when I need to get something done, without turning on the TV.
All you need is an empty tissue box or even an empty garbage sack box works great.
My boy literally runs all around the house trying to find different treasures, when he has found one he is certain I wouldn’t guess, he runs in all excited “Okay mama, what is it!?” While I feel I try to use adjectives like bumpy, smooth, rough, spiky, fuzzy, round, square and then when it is his turn to guess I find he tries to use the same.
