Place an object in a bag that the players cannot see and pass the bag around for a few players to feel and guess what the object is.


After the object is removed from the bag, discuss what it the object represents and what important aspect it contains. Ask the players if they believe this is important for all children and why. Discuss the impact it would have if children were not able to access this right.


Present images that illustrate different ways that children experience these rights or objects.


Repeat steps 2-4 with the other objects in the bag, ensuring that the players do not see the object before it is placed in the bag.


After examining all the objects, ask the players if they have access to all these things. Facilitate a conversation about whether they believe all children should have access to these things. Explain that the things discussed in the game are considered important development and survival rights for children.
