- April 8, 2020 - Can you wiggle your face? Best played in a group, have your kids see who can wiggle different parts of their face without moving the whole thing. They can try wiggling their ears, nose, eyebrows or go cross-eyed. This will get lots of laughs as they see that some people can do it and some can’t at all. It’s also interesting to see the direction in which they wiggle their features, can your nose go up and down as well as side to side?
- April 7, 2020 - Are you right-handed or left-handed? Once you figure this out, you have identified your dominant hand. Today, try doing some tasks with the non-dominant hand, which would be your other hand. Can you open a door or use a fork with your non-dominant hand? What else can you do?
- April 6, 2020 - Draw a picture. Next, write the directions to tell someone else to draw that same picture. Ask someone else to follow your directions, but don't let them sneak a peek at your picture. When they finish, compare drawings! Share your drawings with us on Twitter, #clue901 or @clue901.
