“Who am I ?” game rules

Take some sheets of paper. You will cut this sheet into several square pieces. Prepare double or triple the pieces as the number of participants. On each piece of paper, write the name of an object, place or person. Then, using a piece of tape, glue a piece of paper to the back of each child so that they cannot see the word written on it. They will then have to walk around the room and will have to ask questions of their classmates in order to collect clues that will allow them to find the word written on the paper that is behind their back. Attention, children must ask questions but the answers can only be formulated by yes or no. When the child has guessed the correct word written on his back, he scores 1 point. The adult can then put a new piece of paper on his back and the child can start playing again.
The child who scores the most points wins.


If the kids are very young and can’t read yet, you can use photos or pictures of objects instead. Try to keep the pictures simple and in a similar category, such as sports, shapes, or animals.
