One of These Things…

Contributed by

“One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn’t belong.”

This game is easy and fun to play, even if you–or your kids–aren’t familiar with the old song that usually accompanies it (bonus points if you are!). Whoever goes first names three or four items.  All but one of the items needs to be related in some way. The winner guesses which item does not belong with the rest of the list.

A few examples:

  • “Doughnut, cookie, pretzel, ice cream” (Pretzel doesn’t belong because it’s salty, not sweet)
  • “Orange, baseball, pear ” (Pear doesn’t belong because it’s not round OR baseball doesn’t belong because it’s not a fruit)
