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.
