Choose a child or adult to cover their eyes. Pass around a picture of a flame. When the person with the covered eyes says “STOP!”, the child holding the flame must hide it on their person. Can the person who covered their eyes find it? What clues can we give them?

For this game, you’ll need some small pieces of paper, a fan, and a tub of some kind. The challenge is to get the small pieces of paper across a gap into the tub. Once the child works out a way of doing this, introduce the fan. Talk about the effect the fan, and the wind it produced, had on the outcome.
