Introduce the PEEP and the Big Wide World game “Flower Power” to children. Tell children they are going to play a game about sharing flowers. Say, Chirp and Quack need your help. They want to share the flowers. We have to make sure they each have the same number of flowers.

Guide children to understand that a player needs to drag flowers into Chirp’s area and Quack’s area until they both have the same number of flowers.

Model how to play the game. As you play together, ask,

  • How many flowers does Quack have now?
  • How many flowers should I put here?
  • Who has more flowers now?
  • What should I do to make sure they both have the same number of flowers?

Let children work in pairs to play the game. Give help as needed or pair a young child with an older child who can help.

Adaptation: Very young children may not be able to do the game alone, so play with them one-on-one.
