Mime (Is Pretending a Better Word?)

Mime (Is Pretending a Better Word?)

I know. Scary thought. But the point of this activity is for kids to get acting/pretending, noticing specific characteristics of individuals in their lives and have fun doing it.

  • Make your own game. Make small folded cards with actions listed.  (Eating soup with a fork, jumping on a trampoline, getting married, etc. ) The more activity cards the better.
  • You take turns drawing a card. Consider having a time limit for older kids.
  • Act out the activity.
  • Applause – for effort
  • Decide if you want any competition. You could get points for guessing it right. Or points for getting someone to name it correctly in the shortest amount of time. Or vote at the end for the funniest.
