Game description

This game is a bit more difficult, and one really needs to listen carefully. Otherwise, you won’t win. The game leader puts 5 -10 buttons in a dark jar, and when everybody is sitting quietly, ready to listen. Then he shakes the jar. The objective is for the children to guess how many buttons there are in the jar.


There is also a second version of the game. The game leader hides behind a wall and then drops a certain number of buttons. If the buttons are made from different materials, it is easier to hear how many dropped to the floor. For example, have some brass or plastic buttons. In any case, all participants must be quiet. The child who can guess the right amount of buttons wins. – Or the one that comes closest to the correct result.


The winner is who comes closest to the correct result.
