Game description

For this game, you will need a lot of buttons. 200 – 300 pieces would not be bad. The game leader should prepare those buttons well ahead and also make sure he knows the exact number of buttons available. Then the buttons go into a big enough jar, and every child is allowed to have a guess. The winner is the child, which comes closest to the right amount of buttons. Write it all down so that there is fairness in this game. Of course, another option would be to have the kids count the buttons, but there is little fun in it and also, the time could be used much better. However, you can make the game even harder by asking, for example, how many red buttons are in the jar.


Again, the winner is who gets closest to the correct result.
