I'm Going to the Beach and...

ages 3-6


Activity Detail

This is a good memory game for car rides, restaurants, or anywhere that requires you to sit still. One person starts the game by saying, 'I'm going to the beach and I'm going to bring my ....' Fill in the blank with anything you want, 'flip flops' for example. The next person then repeats the first line and adds another item, 'I'm going to the beach and I'm going to bring my flip flops and my sunblock,' for example. Play continues around the group with each person repeating the items mentioned and adding their own at the end. Each player must begin with the phrase 'I'm going to the beach...' and they must list all items in their correct order. The game starts over when someone forgets an item or messes up the order. It's fun to change around the opening line, also. Instead of the beach you can go to the park, store, grandma's house, or wherever.

This activity could be a really fun way to divert attention away from a long car ride, or long wait in the grocery store, etc. It's *cute*.
