Game description

The objective of this game is to get as many as possible buttons on a string. Every contestant receives a long string and plenty of buttons. The kids are playing against time and have a total of 60 seconds to thread as many as possible buttons. Every button counts. Make sure that all kids receive the same size of buttons. If the needle does not fit through the holes in the button, the child is disadvantaged. This game can be played in teams as well. Or, you can play it without a needle. If you play with really small children, it might be better to play the game without needles. Watch out that the kids do not pick each other with the needles.


The team with the most buttons wins
