Cut five holes of different sizes in the lid of a pasteboard

box. Number the largest hole 5; the next largest 10; the next, 20; the

next, 50; and the smallest, 100.

Place the box on the floor and give each child an equal number of

marbles. The object of the game is to see which child can count the

most by dropping the marbles into the box through the holes.

Each player in turn stands over the box, holds his arm out straight,

even with the shoulder, and drops the marbles one by one into the

box. If one goes through the largest hole it counts 5, if through the

smallest, 100, and so on, count being kept for each player. The one

scoring the greatest number of points is the winner.
