Act It Out

Activity for a group

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • Index cards
  • Magazine pictures of characters and animals that are easy to mime
  • White craft glue
  • A hat or other container
  • Kitchen timer

This simplified version of charades is a great activity for the whole family.

  1. Before the game, glue the magazine pictures onto the index cards.
  2. Place the cards into a hat or other container.
  3. Each person gets a turn to "act it out." The player removes a picture from the hat and gets 10 seconds on the timer to imitate/mime the character on the card. When the time is up, other players guess the picture.
  4. You can choose to let the person who guesses correctly have the next turn or the turns can be predetermined.
