Children love guessing games! They build critical thinking skills in kids and add educational value. They can be played anytime, anywhere!

Mama Kangaroo has a pocket where joey kangaroo lives but she like to hide things in her pocket for joey and you to guess what’s in her pocket. I have made a variety of recognizable items that you can hide in the pocket and give the children verbal clues. Example: It grows outside and is tall. What’s in my pocket? Or maybe this lives in the water, what’s in my pocket now.
For a change, you could do shapes such as circles, square, rectangle and triangle. Also cut the same shape out of different colors. Place one color in the pocket the ask the children what color is in my pocket giving them clues. Ex: green – so clues could be shamrocks, grass, an elf costume, money For yellow: a banana, the sun, a lemon etc.

This is a simple set that anyone can make.

Suggestions for using What’s In My Pocket

NOTE: I use freezer paper to print and cut my patterns. It is the secret to cutting small precise pieces! Freezer paper is available as a roll in grocery stores and can be cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets to print on or you can purchase precut sheets.

I have also included basic instructions on making a felt board with this pattern.

A little about me. My name is Kathy and I have been married to my hubby Paul for 47 years. Where has the time gone? We have 3 children – Steve, Ryan and Holly – and one wonderful son-in-law Dustin. I am a grandma to Malin and Parker and they keep me on my toes. Besides my family and my shop I enjoy traveling, photography, and reading.
