Game description

For this game, the participants have to set up behind a line; a few meters away is the target. Next, the team leader says a particular word. The objective is by listening very well, to find this word within other words. As soon as the child recognises the word, it jumps up, calls out the word and then runs as quickly as possible to the target. Please advise the kids beforehand, that the sought for word often is only very hard to recognise within other words. Now, if one player thinks he has found the word, but then it turns out to be incorrect, he hast to hand over a token to the team leader.


This game is very suitable for a competition between two teams. Both team will recognise some of those hidden words.


The team or player who got the most words right wins. If it comes to a tie, the team or person which had to hand over the fewest tokens wins.
