What You Need:

  • Tissue box
  • Wrapping paper
  • Stickers or paint
  • Paintbrushes and newspaper if you choose to paint
  • Slips of paper
  • Crayons
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape

What You Do:

  1. Have your child help you wrap a tissue box with wrapping paper turned inside out, so the white part or plain side is on the outside and ready to decorate.
  2. Have your child paint, color or sticker the wrapped tissue box. If your child would like to paint, make sure to lay out some newspaper first!
  3. Decide what kinds of things your game will include. What will you see on the trip? Mix it up by putting some common things in with some things that might be a little harder to find.
  4. Have your child write or draw the "things" on small slips of paper.
  5. Place your strips or squares into the tissue box.
  6. Have it handy by the door the day you leave so it won’t be forgotten!

This also works well using colors with younger children. Simply cut out some squares and have your child color each square a different color and put it in the tissue box. On the day of the trip, he must look for items that are the color he draws out of the box. Try it with shapes, too! If your child pulls out a rectangle, he can look for rectangular things like buildings or signs.
