Recipe for Fun!

Without speaking, act out a word or phrase that others can guess. Whoever guesses correctly then begins his or her turn. Have the children choose a category for the game – TV shows, songs, sports, animals, professions, etc. Then have everyone write down a noun in that category (e.g., for professions, write fireman) on a slip of paper. Mix the slips of paper together in a hat or bowl (no clear glass, that’s cheating!). Have one child at a time choose a slip of paper from the mix. That’s what they need to act out without the use of words or sounds!
