Children’s Activity 89: International Capitals

An Indoor Play Activity

Do you know the capital of Uruguay? You will when you’re done with this activity. Or at least your child will.

Materials Required:

  • Your time only

Instructions:

Do you know the capital of Uruguay? You will when you’re done with this activity. Or at least your child will.

Have your child name any country he or she can think of-then try to name the capital yourself.

Now it’s your child’s turn – name a country (not too obscure), and see if he or she can come up with the capital.

Of course, you’ll need to have an almanac or atlas handy to verify the accuracy of guesses.

Once you get the easy ones like Great Britain (London) and France (Paris) out of the way, you’ll be ready to tackle toughies like Zaire (Kinshasa) and Guatemala (Guatemala City).

By the way, the capital of Uruguay is Montevideo. But you knew that.

Other international capitals include:

Canberra (Australia)
Ottawa (Canada)
Havana (Cuba);
Abidjan (Ivory Coast)
Moscow (Russia)
Madrid (Spain)
Stockholm (Sweden)
Wellington (New Zealand)
Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea)

International Capitals is an Indoor Play activity that will provide a lot of fun and and will be wonderful for improving your child’s general knowledge.
