This game needs a large group of kids, about 10 or more. In this game, the children go to their cubbies and get their mittens and boots. These are put in a big pile in the centre of the circle.
The game leader gives each child one boot and one mitt from the pile. On the leader’s signal, the children scramble in the middle to find the match for the mitt and boot they have.
There doesn’t need to be a clear winner. They can just have fun digging in the big heap.
In a daycare setting, to further the experience, you can have the child try to guess whose mitts and boots they have. Then they can put them back in that child’s cubby.
