My version is that you get a big map of the world, or United States and you throw darts at it. It's more of a family project, or if you like to travel. Wherever the dart lands, that's the next place you visit. It's all about being spontaneous. I was inspired by a Mary-Kate & Ashley movie from when I was a kid, and it just stuck.
Draw a letter on a pin board and have children push the pins in correct order to form the letters. (Could write numbers and even draw arrows to show letter formation sequence.) Great for fine motor skill development, but also for remembering the path of motion for each letter.
