Have you ever played the safety pin game before? Well Room 8 literacy played it this morning, I know it sounds boring but it really is fun to play.
This is how you play the safety pin game, first you have to get a bowl of rice then you put 20 safety pins or more in the bowl of rice, you will need more than one person playing with you and a blindfold. The aim of the game is to find all 20 safety pins in one minute, if you get more than the other person you get a prize at the end.
When the whole class was getting ready to play we were excited, as my friend Machelle began to serach though the bowl of rice we were yelling at her and she only got 2 points. It was my turn next and the safety pins felt exactly like the rice, it was so hard to find the safety pins because the rice felt exactly the same.
As I took the blindfold off I could only see 3 points, but I was happy I got more than zero safety pins, I was yelling at my friends and saying “pick it up,pick it up, pick it up,” and they got more safety pins then me I. One of my friends got 9 safety pins and the other got 14 safety pins but the two boys that got the most was Flynlay and Andrew that got 15 safety pins.
The part that I like the most was when everyone was making a mess with the rice especially when Montel had his turn to find the safety pins.
