Boxed In

(for ages 7+)

  • 5 objects to fit inside the box (e.g., a pen, a flashlight, a coin, a peanut, a teabag)
  • A towel
  • A paper for each player
  • A pencil for each player

Prep Time:

  • 7 minutes

Recipe for Fun!

Place the five objects in the box without anyone seeing them. Cover the box with a towel so no one can peek inside. One at a time, have each player feel inside the box and write what they think the objects are on their paper. Don’t let any players see what the others have written! When everyone has had a turn, compare lists. The one who identified the most objects correctly wins!
