Simon Says

Looking for a quick game for your kids to play that might actually teach them something while they enjoy themselves? This is a digital version of Simon Says, the game where you try to copy the moves your leader makes. It resembles the electronic board game I remember from way back.


In this online version of Simon Says, you need to watch and listen to a pattern, then repeat it. As the patterns get longer, the game gets harder. This is a great way to help kids develop their visual and auditory memory. I like that there are colour and positional cues as well as sounds. For a Book Chook challenge, try it with your eyes closed when they give you the pattern, and use your ears to work it out. (I lasted about 60 seconds!)

  1. I always loved the game Simon...my maiden name was Simon so I always felt like the game was created just for me :)

  2. Try it blindfolded and it gains a whole new level of difficulty!
