A step-by-step guide to play the game


Divide the group of players into two teams.


Each group takes a look at the dogs representing the children's rights. The group writes down the children's rights linked to each symbol.


After identifying the different children's rights, each group gets a green and a red bottle cap. The educator picks one of the children's rights, and asks group 1 to look for two situations on the panel.

  • One where the chosen right is respected: the group puts a green bottle cap on this situation and explains to the educator why the right is respected.
  • One where the chosen right is violated: the group puts a red bottle cap on this situation and explains to the educator why the right is violated.

If the group manages to find two situations, they will receive one point. Then, the other group will do the same activity with one of the other children's rights. The game ends when all the rights are covered.


Afterwards, there is the option to link the activity to the topic of safe spaces. For example:

  • In which places are most of the rights respected? Why?
  • In which places are most of the rights violated? Why?
  • What makes you feel safe and protected? Where do you feel safe?
  • How is this linked to children's rights?
