Dinosaur Charades

Our family loves playing charades! It’s always a hit whenever we have a party with friends, a family game night, or just an afternoon when the kids are looking for something to do. It’s so easy to pull out our charades cards and start playing! My kids really have fun playing Verb Charades, winter charades, Winter Charades, Mother’s Day Charades, Bible Charades, Princess Charades, Birthday Charades, and of course, Dinosaur Charades!

How to Play Dinosaur Charades

First, gather your group and divide into at least two teams. If you have a large group, dividing into more teams can make the game go smoother. 

Next, choose which team will go first. You can decide this however you want! I like to roll a die, flip a coin, or play paper-rock-scissors. 

Each team will take a turn having one person act out a card while the rest of the team guesses. The actor chooses a card and, without using their mouth at all, acts out what is on the card. If they guess the right answer in 1 minute or less, they get a point! If they don’t, the other team gets one chance to guess.

The game is over when each person has had a turn to act, when the cards are gone, or when a team has reached a predetermined amount of points. 

Tips and Tricks for Playing Dinosaur Charades

  • Use a timer to help keep track of each team’s turn.
  • Make your cards more durable by printing them on cardstock and laminating them.
  • Each actor can help their team by using hand gestures to tell their team how many words are on the card.
  • Have your own fun ideas for Dinosaur Charades? We’ve included blank cards for you to use!
  • Dinosaur charades can get a little challenging, especially when it is hard to act out different types of dinosaurs, so if it becomes challenging you can always have a word bank for little kids so they can still have fun while playing!
