Equipment Playing cards - enough sets for each child to have 10 – 20 cards.
You could use old greetings cards for younger children.
Give each child a small pile of playing cards and ask them if they can build a house out of cards. This is traditionally done by balancing 2 cards together in an upside down “V” shape, and repeating with 3 or more sets until you have a row of upside down “V” shapes. Then a line of cards are placed horizontally on top and the process is repeated on a second level. However, the children may want to try other ways.
After a few minutes of trying, see if anyone has achieved anything!
