Don’t throw a 1
You need a die, a pad of paper, and a pencil. Then you’re ready to start. The players take turns throwing the die. Each player can throw as many times as they want and collect points (= number on the die). But if they throw a 1, they lose all their points for this round, and the next player is up. This means they need to consider carefully whether they should dare to take another throw, or if they should keep all the points they’ve collected and pass on the die. Whoever has the most points after the set number of rounds, or whoever reaches the set number of points first, wins.
Big clocks go tick-tock, tick-tock (slow tick-tock), little clocks go tick-tock, tick-tock (somewhat faster tick-tock), and little pocket watches go tick-tock, tick-tock (very fast tick-tock). And cuckoo clocks go cuckoo cuckoo (bounce the child on your knees), and the church bells go ding-dong, ding-dong (slow, long back and forth), and the alarm clock goes ... rrrrrrrrring (tickle child)

Take a string or a long stick and hang a key ring, bracelet, or something similar on it. Your child holds one end of the string, and you hold the other. Now lift alternating ends and watch how the cable car moves back and forth. If your child has trouble you can also sit them up on something higher (someone’s lap, for instance) or just move one end.
It was that tree!
One child is blindfolded. Then you spin them around a few times and lead them over to a tree. Now they have to feel the tree very carefully, smell the tree, and try to notice everything they can about the tree. Then you take them back to where they started from. Now take off the blindfold and the child tries to find the right tree. If they recognize all the features, then that means they really felt their tree. Now it’s the next child’s turn.
Do the opposite
Note: Whoever does something wrong is out. One child is the “leader,” and everybody else has to pay close attention. They’re not allowed to do what the leader does; instead, they have to do exactly the opposite. Example: If the “leader” puts their arms up, the other children have to reach down toward the floor. If they laugh, the other children have to cry.
