Warning: If you have not read the Entrepreneur Week expectations blog, or completed ‘Task 1’ Then stop right now! Click the links below, read and complete them first, before you carry on any further!
Now the fun can really begin as you are well under your way to becoming an Entrepreneur! Research and thinking is always the first step!
You now need to find out about which current garden games exist, how popular they are and how old or new they are. You may find some games which are really new, but that does not mean old games are not as fun. Timeless classics such as ‘tig’ and ‘hide and seek’ were invented years ago, but are still popular today!
You may also find out that some games require equipment and some do not, this is also okay! Remember, there are lots of different types of games!
You need to be smart with your choices, there are hundreds of games out there, and you are not going to write about allllll of them, but it is about which games are most fun, interesting, relevant (To the UK and to children) and finally, safe to play!
Task 2: Research about the different garden games that exist, their popularity and how old or new they are. Create a lovely neat table (using a ruler) to display your research.
Researching tips: Now Google will come up with lots of different things. Be SMART with your website choices, some will be more reliable than others, for example a website from a magazine company or games manufacturer is a lot more reliable than a page of people’s opinions saying ‘I love this game!!’ (For example YouTube comments)
But as a starting point for your research, here is a list of things I would type in, which you may use:
- Most popular garden games for kids
- Current garden games for kids without equipment
- Garden games for kids with equipment
- Current outdoor garden games for kids
- Garden games for kids, old and new!
- When different garden games were invented or discovered
An example of how you should lay your table out is below!
Challenge: Can you put the games you have found in chronological order of invention or discovery?
