::: the tickly feather game
Anyone living in Melbourne at the moment will agree with us that we have been experiencing a heap of rain – wonderful, but a bit of a novelty for us here in our drought stricken land. Anyway, that results in a lot more time indoors than we would usually have which means we have more opportunity to do some great large group games.
Louise from Ouyen kindergarten inspired us here with this feather game. We stuck some feathers onto a stick, gave each child a carpet square and had them all scrunch up into a ball on the blue semicircle mat … no peeking!
One child tickled another with the feathers, then handed the feathered stick over to them before sitting down quietly on our green semicircle mat away from the group a little.
The tickled child then has a turn, and so on until all children have been tickled.
It was lovely to see the children’s faces when they joined the tickled group.
It was like a bit of a conspiracy seeing who the last child would be.
What a lovely relaxing game to play on a cold winter’s day. Thanks Louise for the idea.
