What's Different?

ages 3-6


Just the clothes on your back

Activity Detail

This a great game to play with a group. My daughter plays it at her preschool and it always gets everyone laughing, adults too! Have everyone sit in a circle. One person is chosen to leave the room (they'll need an adult to help). That person then changes as much as they can about their appearance - the zanier you make it the better. Untuck their shirt or turn it inside out, tie their sweater around their leg, put a sock on their hand, put a little girl's hair in a crazy-looking ponytail, etc. They then re-enter the room and stand in the middle of the circle while the rest of the group takes turns guessing what's different. When everything has been guessed, it's another child's turn.

You can play this without a group too. Just leave the room, make some changes, and then have your child guess what you have done to change your appearance.

My son loves the book "Wacky Wednesday," by Dr. Seuss in which a boy wakes up one morning to find everything out of place. Shoes are everywhere but on people's feet, birds are chasing cats etc. He loves trying to find the wacky things happening on each page so this activity appeals to his appreciation for "wackiness."

This is a good rainy day activity for at home, too. My 3 year old loves it when things are done backwards like putting her pajama pants on her head. We both had fun and couldn't stop laughing.

This game is great practice at noticing details. If you are not around a group of people, it can also be done with just mom and child.
