Why I Love Charades Games

Charades are some of our favorite games for so many reasons. First and most importantly, they are so fun! My family loves laughing and acting out the charades ideas together. Sometimes we forget to keep score because we are having so much fun! 

Another reason charades are so fun is because it allows your family to work together in teams. Learning how to work in a group is an awesome life lesson and your family is going to love working together toward a common goal. 

Charades are also really great at getting shy kids to open up and play. When everyone is being silly and feeling goofy, it helps shy kids to open up and participate. 

How To Play Charades

One of the best things about charades is that it’s so easy to play— no fancy materials or long set up. 

Simply add your Mother’s Day charades cards to a bowl and take turns acting out the prompts for your team. You have 1 minute to guess the clue your teammate is trying to act. If you get the prompt correct within the time your team gets 1 point. If you team doe snot guess correctly, then the other team gets one guess to get the right answer. If they guess correctly, then they get a point. Whichever team has the most points at the end of the game wins! It’s as easy as that!
