Take it in turns to make a triangle on the pegboard. Can you block your opponent?
Age 5 to 7
You can play this game for two players on the interactive pegboard, or on a real circular pegboard if you have one. Or you could print off sheets of circles from this page.
How to play:
Firstly, choose the number of pegs on your board. Six might be a good choice to start with and you could print off this sheet of pegboards with six pegs if you are not using the interactivity.
Take it in turns to add a band to the board.
Bands must fit round three pegs, in other words, each must make a triangle.
A band can share a peg with other bands, but the triangles must not overlap (except along the edges and pegs).
A player loses when they cannot make a triangle on their turn.
Try playing, several times.
