Activity: Cone Match

Cone Match is a fun, cooperative challenge game in which children must use their communication skills to match up with others holding the same-coloured cone as them on their head.


  1. Children must find the most effective/efficient way to find everyone with the same colour cone on their head as them.
  2. In the first-round children can speak to each other so the game will go quickly.
  3. In the second-round children will play in silence so their tactics of communication will need to change.
