Cover them Up!

Age Range: 7 - 11

This is a game for two players. Before the children can begin playing, you will need to do the following:

  • Download the resources in the PDF below.
  • Print the playing board.
  • Print the cards, cut them out and back them with thin card.

Instructions:

The men and monkeys on the game board have all entered a beauty contest. However, the men have forgotten to put their clothes on! The monkeys are very embarassed, so it is your children's job to cover the men up with counters:

  • Turn all of the cards upside down
  • Players take it in turn to pick up two cards.
  • Add the amount on the cards together. If the answer is the same as a number on one of the boxes then you can cover up the man / monkey standing on it by placing a counter over it.
  • The winner is the first to cover up ten men (not monkeys, because monkeys are not supposed to wear clothes anyway!)

Alternatives:

All of the cards are placed face upwards and each player has 30 seconds to pick two cards which make any number on the playing board.

For one person; cover all of the men with counters. remove one counter at a time and find the correct two cards which make up that number.
