Game: I Went to the Moon

  • Have the children sit in a circle on the floor. Set the stage for this game by telling the girls:
  • "Real astronauts are tested for many important things before they're allowed to go into space. One thing astronauts need is a good memory, so let's see if everybody can remember what they brought to the moon!"
  • To begin the game, the first player starts by saying, "I went to the Moon, and I took ___________," filling in the blank with an item that starts with the letter A. The second player must repeat what the first player said and add an item that begins with the letter B. Each subsequent player must recite the whole list of items, plus one starting with the next letter in the alphabet. This continues until a player cannot remember the whole list.
