Using my good friend "google images", I printed off a bunch of pictures of aliens. I taped these all over the room before my friend entered. We also had a toy rocket ship (you could print this out too or make your own). When he came in I told him the aliens had invaded and they were on a mission to find out more about him. We needed to help them get back to their planet, but they wouldn't leave until they had their questions answered. When I touched the alien I put it on my forehead and it "took over my body", the alien asked a question, such as "what do you like to do outside?", or "what's your favorite breakfast food?" When my friend answered, he was chased and hugged by the alien (his biggest motivation). The alien was then immobilized and could be moved to the rocket ship safely. It was a huge hit, and I'm sure this game can be modified in many ways. Here are a few:
Attention Span Goal - Just put up the aliens and help your child find them and put them in the rocket ship.
-Use a laundry basket as the rocket ship and zoom around the room, collecting the aliens
-Hide the aliens around the room and put clues to the next alien on each one
Eye Contact Goal - Similar game as the original described except no question, but you can only chase your child after they have looked for a predetermined amount of time.
There are many more ways to play this, if you would like share your ideas in the comments section! Happy Playing!
