How to Play Charades with Kids:
If you’ve never played charades, where have you been all of your life? 😉 Just kidding.
It’s really easy to play. You just choose a word and then act it out without talking.
A few rules of charades:
- You typically have 2 teams. One person from the team chooses a word and the rest of the team toys to guess it.
- The actor can not make any lip movements or sounds at all.
- The team can ask the actor questions and they can not or shake their head yes or no.
- Choose a time limit – 30 seconds to a minute for the person acting. If the phrase is not guessed, they team loses that point.
- You can indicate how many words the phrase is on your fingers.
