Bug under the rug

If you have not played this game you are missing out! The physical version hides a child under a blanket “bug under the rug”, and the students guess who is underneath by identifying who is missing from the group. A great circle time game! This is the printable version and can also be great for circle time or for science centers.


This was the EASIEST set up I have done. We recently purchased these stacking stones from amazon…and I am in LOVE! The kids use fine, and gross motor skills, in addition to problem solving and focus to stack and balance the stones. I then added some blocks in for an additional challenge.
