Games for 3 - 5yrs Battle Cushions
This game needs 2 children ideally and lots of cushions or pillows and some old newspapers.
First each child needs to make “bombs” by rolling up pages of the newspaper into balls.
Let each child build a “fort” (pile of cushions to hide behind) facing each other at opposite ends of a room or either end of a corridor.
They need to take half the newspaper balls each and take it in turns to throw them from their fort to try to hit the cushions of the other fort.
(Throwing accurately is usually beyond most 5yr olds but they do enjoy the practice).
The best thing about this game is the sound effects! Ensure they make the whizzing through the air noise then the explosion noise as the “bomb” strikes even if it misses!
