Review of Pass the Bag

This was the most popular game with my group of children. It is a mix of lotto and lucky dip and requires each child, in turn, to take a plastic shape from a bag and match it to the picture on their baseboard. A net insert in the semi-transparent bag allows the child to realise where the shape they want is lying, and encourages recognition of the properties of shape by touch. This game is great fun and once it had been played several times with an adult supporting, the children could play it by themselves and even explain it to other children who joined the group.
