Marble run – give each participant a tube, cardboard, pod noodle, taped paper etc. the idea is that the children transport a marble safely through the various tubes. Either round a circle or with fewer children across a room.
increase your offering – the aim of this game is to collect 6 red tokens. You can use anything for tokens but you will need a plentiful supply of both red and blue tokens. You can set any tasks you wish to allow children to earn and lose tokens. They can swap 3 blue tokens for one red and steal blue tokens from other people by making them laugh.
