This is a simple guessing game for which you just need two kids! Great for passing the odd waiting moment or car journey.
The children face each other and count to 3. On "3" they put out one hand - either as a fist or with 1, 2 or 3 fingers extended, shouting out at the same time a number between 1 and 6.
Add up the number of fingers extended. If a child guessed the exact number of fingers shown they score 2 points. If they guessed nearest the number of fingers shown, they score 1 point. If there is a tie, no points are scored. The first to a given number or points - perhaps 5 or 10 - wins.
For older children, or larger number of children, try Throwing Fists
