This game happened quit by accident.
Little Mister brought a green car, yellow number, a blue man and his new "Mack" truck to the table one morning. He loves the truck because the back opens and he can put small cars or toys in it.
I noticed him put something in, tap on the table, and take it right back out. Then he'd select another item, put that in, tap and out... on and on he went!
So, I thought we would make a memory and observation game of it.
I placed the three toys in front of him and told him to take a good look and then pointed out each one and said their name. Then, I got him to close his eyes and hid one of the toys in the truck.
He opened his eye and I pointed to the remaining toys and said therir names and asked him to guess what was in the truck.
We did it several times and I then stopped pointing out the toys and just let him observe what was there. After a few tries I added a new toy, pointing it out and saying its name. A few tries more and a new toy was introduced.
Having fun and sharpening some observation and memory skills!
