A classic party game where children try to guess what is being drawn. Best done on a chalkboard or a whiteboard, but you can do it on a big piece of paper. Use sidewalk chalk to turn it into a fun outdoor game!

  1. Pick 1 person to be the drawer for this round.
  2. Whisper an object to draw in their ear.
  3. The other kids shout out trying to be the first to guess what is being drawn.
  4. Alternatively, split the kids up into teams and give the drawer for each team the same object.

Sample objects to draw:

  • animals (lion, dog, zebra, whale, narwhal, etc.)
  • food (cupcake, pizza, apple, spaghetti, etc.)
  • identifiable famous people or characters (Abe Lincoln, Spongebob, Blackbeard, etc.)
  • buildings (Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, Leaning Tower of Pisa, etc.)
  • sports (soccer ball, baseball bat, helmet, etc.)
  • household items (toothbrush, soap, deodorant, etc.)
  • outdoors (trees, the sun, mountains, etc.)
  • weather (snow, tornado, earthquake, etc.)
  • clothing (shoes, tuxedo, pocket watch, etc.)
