Games for 3 - 5yrs What is Missing (3 years +)
This works well if you are on a train or in an airport or plane:
Get a selection of objects from your handbag; e.g. keys, phone, coins, tissue, child’s toy. Put them on a table. Get your child to look at them for 10 s or so, then get your child to look away and take one of them away.
When your child looks back he/she has to tell you which object is missing.
A variation on this for an older child would be to put all the objects back in your bag or cover them with a tea towel and see how many of them your child can remember!
