Game description

All you need for this game is a blindfold and an x amount of buttons. One child is selected which gets blindfolded by the game leader. Next, the kid has to count as many as possible buttons in a given time. The buttons could be in a box, bad, or even on the clothes of other players. This game trains the sense of touch in particular.


Not only must the number of buttons to be counted, but also the size or shape of the buttons or how many buttonholes there are in total.


If several kids play at the same time, they could be evaluated by time, the fastest counter or who has the most correctly counted buttons
