How to Play 4th of July Charades

You can play 4th of July Charades the same way you would play most other charades games! Here are some simple steps to follow:

  • Divide into two or more teams. If your group is very large, you may want to form multiple teams to help things go more smoothly.
  • Determine which team will go first. You choose your favorite way to decide! You can flip a coin, have a thumb wrestle, or create your own silly method!
  • The first team’s actor chooses a card and acts it out. Remember, no talking! Be careful to not use your mouth at all to make sounds or mouth the words. The rest of the team has one minute to guess. If they guess correctly, they get a point! 
  • If they don’t guess correctly, the other team has a chance to guess it and steal that point. There’s only one chance, so you’ll want to make sure to discuss it as a team before you make your guess. 
  • The game is ended when you’ve run out of cards, when everyone has had a turn, or when you’ve reached a predetermined amount of points. Whoever has the highest points wins! Why not celebrate with some prizes or treats?

Tips and Tricks for Playing 4th of July Charades

  • It’s smart to go over the rules before you start playing. Making sure everyone understands them will help you avoid confusion or frustration during the game.
  • Don’t forget that actors can use their hands! It can be helpful to hold up fingers to tell your team how many words to guess.
  • Don’t be afraid to be a little silly! You’ll have more fun, and your team might be more successful at guessing! 
  • Using a timer makes it easier to keep track of each turn.
  • Print your cards on cardstock and laminate them so you can use them over and over again!
