Players use duplo blocks to form various shapes in pairs, while one is blindfolded. The one blindfolded will feel the shape using finger to count remaining circles in order to duplicate the shape.
Blind duplo is a game meant to get kids excited about general counting. In maths clubs blind duplo has been adapted to:
- Develop collaboration and turn taking in kids.
- Develop flexible ways of adding.
- Encourage children to follow general rules.
- Duplo blocks
How to play:
- Players get into pairs
- They each get a set of four duplo blocks
- One person is blindfolded while the other makes a shape out of the duplo blocks
- The blindfolded person has to duplicate the shape made by their partner
- The one blindfolded has to count the space not covered using their fingers in order to get a feel of the formed shape and duplicate it
- Players swap roles and play again
- The one who can duplicate the shape most wins
- Players can count the number of circles on each duplo block,
- Players then have to add how many circles are on two, three and four duplo blocks
- Players share their methods of addition.
