Occupation Charades

Do your kids love to talk about what they want to be when they grow up? With so many interesting and exciting occupations out there, it’s so hard for a kid to decide! 

Our Occupation Charades game makes it so much fun to explore the many different kinds of jobs people do in our community!

Some of my favorite family memories are from playing charades together! We love to get silly and make each other laugh with our actions! 

It’s also fun to get a little bit competitive and have a prize for the winning team! 

We’ve had so much fun playing Dinosaur Charades and Verb Charades, and of course, we love Occupation Charades! I know your family will love it too, so be sure to grab it today and start playing!

How to Play Occupation Charades

  • Divide into at least two teams. If your group is very large, you may want to form multiple teams.
  • Decide which team will go first. You can flip a coin, play paper-rock-scissors, or create your own silly method! The choice is yours! 
  • The first team has one person (the actor) choose a card and act it out. Remember, you can’t use your mouth at all to make sounds or mouth words! The rest of the team has one minute to guess. If they guess correctly, they get a point! 
  • If they don’t guess it correctly, the other team has a chance to guess it and steal the point. There’s only one chance, so make sure the whole team agrees before you guess! 
  • The game is over when you’ve run out of cards, when everyone has had a turn, or you’ve reached a predetermined amount of points. Whoever has the highest points wins!

Tips and Tricks for Playing Occupation Charades

  • It’s a good idea to go over the rules and make sure everyone understands them before you start playing! This can help avoid any confusion during the game. 
  • Using a timer makes it easier to keep track of each turn.
  • Don’t forget that actors can use their hands to indicate how many words their team should guess.
  • Don’t be shy! Get into the fun of acting out each card, and don’t be afraid to be a little silly!
  • Print your cards on cardstock and laminate them so you can use them over and over again!
