Toy bugs and insects (available from cheap $2 shops)
Chopsticks or tweezers for each player
An empty egg carton for each player
Scatter the toy bugs and insects over the floor or a flat surface. Each player acts as a mother or father finch by using the chopsticks (finch’s beak) to pick up as many insects as possible and place them into their egg carton for their babies. ● When all the insects have been collected, line them up to see who has collected the most. ● The player with the most insects wins. Going further: ● Design your own games using other animal families as inspiration.
