CMSM-at-Home Guessing Box

Hello from #CMSMatHome!

Have you ever made a guessing box? Let’s create one today! Find a box, big or small, and make a hand-sized hole in it. Gather your mystery items (or have someone else do it), and place them inside the box. Make sure to hide a variety of items, from shapes to materials and textures. If you’d like, decorate your box with markers or crayons, or use stickers.

Play with family members and take turns reaching into the box and trying to figure out what each item is. Share with everyone what you think or feel as you explore a mystery item.
