Animal mime game rules
The principle is simple. Plan, depending on the number of children, some papers with animal names: one on which you will write the name of the male and on the other that of the female. Prepare several papers in this way; put the males in a bowl and the females in another in order to separate them.
At the same time, plan 2 teams: 1 which will represent the males and the other the females… If you have the same number of girls as boys, put the boys on one side and the girls on the other; otherwise mix the children…
If you have 10 children present on your birthday, plan for 5 males and the 5 corresponding females, which will make your 10 papers. You can prepare a little more in advance so that you can do multiple games.
Each child will draw a piece of paper at random… Explain to the children that at the start signal, they will have to imitate the animal drawn at random and find the male or female animal that corresponds to it. Everyone must therefore find their half. Crazy laughter guaranteed between cows, pigs, horses, elephants or even different types of birds!
When the children have found their pair, they say the animal they were mimicking aloud to see if the male matches the female.
To simplify the game for the little ones, you can put the names of the animals in a bowl and simply put the names in duplicate: everyone will have to find the one that is identical to him.
