Countdown to Your Turn

ages 2-6

Activity Detail

Sharing is always a difficult thing to do (even for grown-ups) and can be especially challenging during playdates and playgroups. One way to make a "turn" seem more finite and concrete is to have the kids count to a certain number and then the turn is over. For example, if everyone wants to swing on the swing, let each child swing until he or she counts to 20, for a young child, or 50, for an older one. This turns waiting into a game and a learning time.

The last sentence should read "This turns waiting into a game .."
