The verbs charade game rules

The verbs Charade Game works for just about any age group because most kids already know how to play this game – and those who don’t will learn it quickly. Here’s how to play: Write out some phrases or words that can be easily acted out on small pieces of paper and put them in an envelope. Some examples might be “Taking a shower” or “Combing your hair” or “Reading a newspaper”. Divide the kids up into two teams. The first team sends one person up to the front and they have to act out as many actions as they can in two minutes while the other team guesses the action being performed. Then the next team goes, etc. One point is awarded for each correct answer. Note: Make sure that the team sends up a different person for each round. You can play as many rounds as you want.
