Why I Love Charades

It’s so easy to set up and start playing charades! It’s the perfect no-muss, no-fuss game for any family game night! All you need are a group of people and your printed charades cards, and you are ready to go! 

Whether you have young children, teens, or a mixture of all ages, charades can be played by the whole family. Everyone is guaranteed to have a great time! You’ll love how your family bonds over your time spent playing together!

How to Play Nature Charades

  • Divide into two or more teams. If your group is very large, you may want to form multiple teams. If you only have two people, that’s okay too! You can take turns guessing each other’s cards.
  • Decide which team will go first. You can decide this however you want! Flip a coin, see who can hop on one foot the longest, or create your own silly method! 
  • To start the game, an actor from the first team chooses a card and then acts it out without using their mouth at all, not even to mouth words. The rest of the team has just one minute to guess. If they guess correctly within a minute, they get a point! Hooray! 
  • If they don’t guess it correctly, the other team has one chance to guess it and steal the point. Remember you only get one guess, so make it a good one! You might want to decide together as a team what your guess will be.
  • The game ends when you’ve run out of cards, when everyone has had a turn to act, or when you’ve reached a predetermined amount of points. Whoever has the highest points wins! Time to celebrate with some treats or prizes!

Tips and Tricks for Playing Nature Charades

  • To avoid any confusion or frustration during the game, I recommend going over the rules as a group before playing to make sure everyone understands them.
  • Using a timer can help you keep track of each turn.
  • Use your hands! Actors can tell their team how many words to guess by holding up that many fingers.
  • Don’t be afraid to get silly when it’s your turn to be the actor! Your team will have an easier time guessing, and you’ll have a lot more fun!
  • Print your cards on cardstock and laminate them so you can use them over and over again!
