What We Thought About Charades for Kids
I don’t know about you but in our house, we love playing games! We usually play a game 3-4 times a week around here. I grew up playing games a LOT, it is one of my favorite childhood memories. We played board games and cards alike! So I was really excited to get this game to play with my son and hopefully foster a love of games in him, too. He is a big fan of games already, so I hoped something really interactive (you know, for a wiggle worm of a toddler) would be a hit with him. It totally was! We played non-stop for about an hour before bedtime. I really love how easy this game is to play, it is complex enough that older kids can be involved but easy enough for little ones to understand. My son is 4, so of course he isn’t reading yet, and he was able to understand what to do. It took us a few times and lots of reminders not to say it out loud but he definitely caught on. He did not want to stop playing! I loved that the directions were inclusive of readers and non-readers, it allows for some independence in those headstrong little ones! There were 2 decks of cards in this box and we only unwrapped and used one side and still didn’t touch all of the cards which is awesome because it isn’t overly repetitive. Plus, each card has 3 charades on it so that really extends the options- something different every time! We played in a group of 3 but this would also be great for a large group.
The timer was especially great because it allowed plenty of time for acting out and for my son to guess what we were doing, too. It didn’t feel rushed at all! The dice has 1, 2, or 3 and corresponds to the charade you’ll act out, or a picture which the non-reader gets to act out. We loved this game and will have a blast playing it for a long time to come!
