How to Play
  • Ask someone to lie down on their tummy in the play space (or create pairs/groups and have one person lay down in each group).
  • The remaining children move around the space and find objects to place on the person that is laying down.
  • The person laying down has to lie as still as possible while as much stuff as possible is placed on top of them.
  • Alternatively, the person laying down has to try and guess what has been placed on them.
Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options
  • If you have a child who uses a wheelchair or has a gross motor limitation, place objects where they are able to reach them.
  • When being the person who is laying down, find a position they are comfortable in or encourage them to move as little as possible wherever is appropriate.
