What’s in the Bag Game – A Retro Child’s Game

This was activity was originally meant to be a guess what the shape is, but as I was getting ready to write about this I had an epiphany: why not add different versions. So instead of this just being a guess the shape, there are now 3 different sets to use with this activity. Thus it can either be a guess the shape or guess the letter or even guess the number, but why stop there? You could easily add more categories such as guess the animal, colour, word, or object. For children who are learning another language you could even do it in that language. Literally the possibilities are endless.

To make you own guess what it is you will need:

  • A bag
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Pen/ crayon/ pencils


  1. On your paper draw and cut out your shapes. It you are doing letters and numbers you cut out squares and then draw the letters/ numbers on them. I used blue cardstock and white crayon to write the letters; the reason for this is if you have a child who is dyslexic it is easier to read white writing on blue than black writing on white.
  2. Put you shapes/ letters/ numbers into your bag (do one category at a time) then get you little one to pick one item out at a time.

This activity may help development of:

  • Vocabulary
  • Mathematical terms to describe shapes
  • Knowledge of letters
  • Knowledge of numbers
