Description of Activity
This activity is a basic game of charades with a twist designed to get everyone laughing.
Gather the group in a large circle. Have one child choose an animal and move to the center of the circle to act it out. (Optional: Suggest animals from Leader Resource 1.) Encourage actors to use motions and behaviors, as well as sounds.
The others try to guess which animal it is. Once the animal is known, everyone then acts it out, following the actor's motions or creating their own. Take turns so everyone who wants to gets a chance to be the animal actor.
