Cartoon Memory Game
Equipment:
• Cartoon video
• TV/video player
• Paper
• Pencils

Instructions:
• Watch a cartoon and from it collect 10 simple questions: Who did...? What did...? What happened after...? What colour was....? How many....? etc.
• Then show the cartoon to the young people and give them a sheet with the questions on. This will work particularly well with a cartoon that all the young people are familiar with. Alternatively, ask the questions at the end of the video.
• Then either mark the question sheets or give points for verbal answers and possibly give a prize for the winner.

Some of your young people may always be first to give an answer. Use the opportunity to ask individual members other simple supplementary questions so they can also score points.

Kim’s Game
Equipment:
• Tray
• Household objects
• Tea towel

Instructions:
• Place ten small common household objects a tray.
• Show the tray to the young people for about a minute and ask them to memorise as many of the things as they can.
• Then take the tray away from the young people and cover it with a tea towel.
• Without the young people seeing, remove one of the items from the tray.
• Now place the tray in front of the young people again, remove the tea towel and ask if they can tell you what has been removed.
• This can then be repeated until all objects are removed.

The can be played individually or as a team.

Coins
• Have sets of coins used every day.
• Put on a tray and let the young people have a short time to study them, trying to remember which coin is worth.
• Cover them up and take one away.
• See if the young people can tell which one is missing.
• Repeat several times
