required: Cards with animal names, enough so that everyone has one.
time is about 5-10 minutes.
game is appropriate for all ages.
least 15 minutes is needed to play this game.
Attach a card with an animal name on the back of each player and have everyone
stand in a circle. Pick a starting point and have that first player walk
around the circle so that everyone can see what is on their back. Everyone
else, who have now seen what the person in the center has on their back,
must act out that animal so the person may guess it. You can do this one
at a time, but it tends to be a little more fun and exciting if everyone
does it at once. When the person guesses what they are, they get back in
the circle, and the next person goes out. This is repeated until everyone
guesses what animal is on their back.
Make sure to stress that there is no talking, no telling, and no peeking!
the temptation is almost irresistable!
