How to Play

Get a large plastic bottle and add a small amount of rice, then add a small object, then add some more rice. Repeat this process until the bottle is nearly full but with a few centimetres spare to allow the rice to move. The objects will be lost in the rice and this forms the game. Children have to turn, rattle and shake the bottle in different ways in order to find all the objects and make them come to the surface. Children should decide how many points each object is worth and when they have found an object, they add the points together.

A few reminders:

make sure you note down all the objects that need to be found and the points before starting to play

Glue the lid shut and make sure it is screwed on tightly.

Ideas of small objects that can be put in the bottle:

– A paper clip

– A pebble

– A bead

– A small rubber

– A bow

– A pom pom

– An elastic band

– A pipe cleaner

– A stone

– A dice

– A feather

Finding the Objects will teach children perseverance, hand-eye coordination and will develop numeracy skills. Children will start to learn which objects are easy to find due to the weight of each object and how they need to manipulate the bottle in order to find the objects. Children can play this game alone or in a cooperative or competitive way.
