Instructions:

1) Players sit in a circle facing each other. One player starts the game by saying, 'I went to the shop and I bought..(they add what they bought here say an apple) an apple'.
2) The next person says, 'I went to the shop and I bought a banana and a (they need to recall what the previous person bought here) apple'.
3) Each player must state what they themselves are buying at the shop and all the previous items that each person has bought in order! If they cannot recall it all in order they are out of the game.

Why?: It is really challenging meaning that it forces kids to really listen, concentrate and pay attention. Often skills children really need to practise.

Additions: Have each child add some actions to their 'shopping list' so that as each child recalls each players list they must also do the actions that go with it. Try getting the children to 'buy' more than one thing, making it even harder to remember.
