Charades for Kids
I’ve actually never played charades with my kids because I didn’t think they’d be able to act out the words on cards in other games. They often have phrases they wouldn’t recognize (like movies from the past) and my 4-year-old can’t read. The Dr. Seuss Charades Game is great for kids. With the picture cards it is so simple they can play it by themselves or with parents (which makes my kids get super giggly). Try acting out Horton, the elephant, or a Yink drinking Pink Ink (guess the word ‘drink’). This game is for ages 3+.
How to Play and Our Review:
The charade cards show three pictures from Dr. Seuss books. The actor gets to choose which one they want to try to act out. The opposite side of the card shows six possible pictures for the guesser to choose from. This really helped my 4-year-old make a match between the picture and the actions. It was a little too easy for my older kids so I made them guess without looking at the choice card. That made it more fair.
I really liked that this was not set up to play as teams. It was individual players acting for the player on their left. Also, you don’t earn a point but if you get the correct answer you get to roll the die and move so many spaces on the striped board. This helps the game move more quickly.
We played it in our Dr. Seuss playroom where we also love to Hop on Pop! (See how we made our Hop on Pop trampoline here.
Our family had so much fun playing the Dr. Seuss™ Charades Game. It is perfect to pull out for preschool play dates and family game night.
*Disclosure: I received a Dr. Seuss Charades board game from Wonder Forge for review. I was not paid additional compensation for this review. All opinions and experiences are my own. We previously purchased many of their games because we love them. Our closet is stacked with them. See our review of What’s in the Cat’s Hat, the Dr. Seuss Fun Machine AppPlay, and the One Fish Two Fish game.
Wonder Forge games can be found online or at local stores like Toys 'R Us, Target and Wal-mart. They also offer many other pre-school and grade school appropriate games such as Richard Scarry's Busy Town, Curious George and Chugginton series.
