Cover itback up when time is up.5.Now move, take away, or addsomething to the pile of thingswithout letting your friends seewhat you’re doing.6.Invite your friends to try to guesswhat it was you moved, removed, oradded.7.Do it again and take turns being themover.This is another great exercise to improveyour observation skills. I do this with myfamily at restaurants. I just grab stuff on thetable, lay it out and have my family try toguess what’s been changed. (Be careful ofgrumpy waitresses!)
