Challenge: Play Animal Charades with your family:

3. Take turns drawing a paper from the container and acting it out (without talking) in front of your audience until someone guesses it correctly


  • Usually, charades is meant to be played without using words or sounds, but you can always adapt it depending on the age of the children playing. Toddlers may enjoy making the animals sounds in addition to doing the animal actions!

  • You can make up your own rules to suit your family or group of kids. You would start out the game with the rule that the actor could not make any noises. If no one in the audience was able to guess the correct answer, you would start giving clues and allowing sounds.
