Charades for Kids by Pressman, ages 4 and up, 3 or more players
The classic game of Charades – now designed especially for kids to play and enjoy! With three levels of clues, each card has one pictured clue, so no reading is required (although the combination of the picture and its corresponding word reinforces early reading skills). Younger players can act out a toothbrush, a cat or a bumblebee. Older children can read the simple words and phrases and act out actions like eating spaghetti or playing guitar! It’s great fun for the whole family as they try to guess the charade before time runs out!
The game includes 150 cards with 450 charades, 1 game die, 1 sand timer, and complete instructions. To get ready to play, simply shuffle the cards and place the deck face down on the table.
Reading is not required to play
The youngest player starts the game by rolling the game die and turning over the top card of the deck. The player looks at the charade that corresponds to the number that was rolled. Non-reading players will select the picture that is on the card – they do not roll the die.
Fun for the whole family!
Once the timer is flipped, the player starts acting out the charade to the player on the left. Actions and noises are allowed when you charade, but no words! Players are allowed only one guess for each turn. If the first guess is incorrect, the next player gets to guess, and so on. When you guess correctly, you win the card being played. Be the first player to collect three cards to win!
