Here’s how to play:
- The first person begins by saying “I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m bringing…” – then they finish the sentence with an object that starts with A, the first letter of the alphabet.
- The next person then does the same. You would say, “I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m bringing…” – this time, this player has to repeat the first person’s “A” object then add one of their own, starting with the letter “B”
- For example, if the first person said Apple and you want to add a Baseball, you’d say, “I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m bringing… an Apple and a Baseball.”
- Then, say the next person wanted to add a Cat, for the letter C. They would have to remember all of your objects and say, “I’m going on a camping trip, and I’m bringing… an Apple and a Baseball and a Cat.”
Continue taking turns, but remember that each time before you add your own object to the list, you have to repeat the objects that everyone else is bringing.
It can get super tricky to remember everyone’s objects when you get to the middle of the alphabet – Great exercise for your memory!
