Telephone


This old-fashioned game works best when it’s started off with a sentence that’s either long or complicated—or both. The kids sit in a circle, and one person starts by whispering the sentence in their neighbor’s ear. That person whispers it on to their neighbor, who passes it along until everyone has had a chance to hear and repeat the sentence.

In the end, the last child can repeat the sentence out loud as they heard it, to see if it transformed along the way. It almost always does!

How to Play the Game - Story Circles

There are as many ways to build group stories as there are kids on the planet.  When you’ve tried all of these, see if your group can make up a new version that they’ll want to play again and again.  To begin a chain story, one person starts with a conditional sentence (something that starts with the word “if”), such as “If my bike gets a flat, I’ll have to walk.”  The second person picks up the second half of the sentence and adds something of their own, like “If I have to walk, I’ll take my dog.”  Then the third, “If I take my dog, we can get ice cream.”  Keep going until you get bored, or until everyone has had at least two chances to add to the story, then start again with something new.

How to Play the Detective Guessing Game

This is a game for older kids.

Everyone sits in a circle, and closes their eyes. One pre-designated person, maybe the grown up, tiptoes around the circle and pats on child on the head. This is the “murderer.” The adult touches two other kids on the arms. These are the “detectives.”

Card Games

Depending on the size of your group, you might find that card games are the perfect way to while away the hours.  From smaller group games like gin, gin rummy, king’s corners, war, and old maid to big group games like spoons, a deck of cards can be the answer to your boredom problem.  Challenge the teenagers in your group to learn something tricky like pinochle, bridge, or canasta, or introduce a younger child to the rules of solitaire.  Spoons—a card-game version of musical chairs—is especially good for a group with a little excess energy.
