Anytime we visit my parents house, Kora pulls out the John Deere lunch box filled with farm animal figures. She usually spreads them all over the floor and I usually end up stepping on them (at least it’s not a Lego!).
Today she played with them on the coffee table and then abandoned them there when she decided to play with other toys. As a way to get Kora to help clean up the animals my mom made up a game I’ll call Race to the Animal.
My mom set up all the animals on the coffee table and then had Kora stand back a couple feet. Nannie would first ask Kora to find a specific animal and then instruct her to ‘Go!”
Kora would race to the table to find the requested animal.
Race to the Animal is a game that was made up on the spot but it’s one that I can use a lot. I like the idea of making cleaning up a fun game. Or I can use it with Kora to practice letters or numbers. Or anything else for that matter. Thanks Nannie for thinking up this fun game!
