Christmas stocking guessing game rules
Fill a stocking with small toys and Christmas items, for example, a candy cane, a bell, a small car or a pine cone. Children will take turns touching the stocking and trying to discover what’s inside.
Put your objects (about 5 or 6) in the stocking. Provide a paper and pencil for each child. Children will take turns touching the stocking to discover as many objects as possible that are inside but without looking. They just have to use their hands and feel through it. They will write down the objects they think they have guessed on their sheet of paper. The child who guesses the most objects will win the game.
Choose the objects according to the age of the children by placing simple objects in the stocking that are easier to identify for the younger children.
Put objects such as a pencil, a pine cone, a roll of tape, a small car, a marble, a candy, a candy cane or a lego…
