It’s not easy to find games that get kids up and moving, engaged, excited, and thinking, but Partner Match is a winner in our book.
And the cool thing about it is that there are a million ways of playing, depending on the number of people playing, the amount of space, and the amount of time you have to play.
We’ve played Partner Match both as a game for Valentine’s Day class parties and at home as a questioning and ‘Guess Who?’ type of game, and my kids like it either way.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Partner Match– Cool Game for Questioning, Thinking, Chatting, Moving & More:
Partners come in many shapes and sizes, so I like that this game gives kids a chance to look at people who ‘go together’ in a number of different ways.
Partners can be sweethearts, friends, buddies, or pals. They can be siblings or cousins. In our game, partners can be real or fictional, human or not human.
They can be just about anything you need them to be. But kids get the idea of partners–they understand how some people, especially familiar faces from storybooks, films, games, and their life–just ‘go’ together.
And also check out how you can see how Partner Match as part of a Valentine’s Day class party or other larger-group game.
