O is for opposites

Love these signs at The National Strong Museum of Play

O is for opposites.

Sweet Pea is really good at coming up with opposites. He’s also really good at trying to act them out or finding them around the house. (Try to imagine that if you can!)

Hard – soft
Up – down
In – out

This is also a good challenge for when we need to keep the boys occupied for a few minutes…we call out a word and they have to come up with the opposite, or we sneakily ask them to call out the first word that comes to mind when we say a word. That’s always interesting!

This idea sort of piggybacks on the similar or different ‘game’ we played the other day. I’m not sure why, but it seems our boys have fun with thinking games….

What kind of games do your kids like?
