Fun in the Sun Games – Telephone Pictionary

In this weekly series we highlight fun, simple games which can be played at your local park, around your campsite firepit, with new friends or family. The games vary from icebreakers, name games, and exercise warm-ups, to puzzles or riddles. Check out our weekly post and get out there and have some fun!

Participants: 5 or more

Equipment: Paper and pen/pencile

Timeframe: 10 to 20 minutes

Objective: To observe how a sentence can evolve. Participants form a circle. The facilitator writes a sentence at the top of a piece of paper and passes it to the next person in the circle. That person draws the sentence (to the best of their ability). The paper is then folded so that the sentence is not visible, and then passed to the next person in the circle. This person looks at the drawing and writes down a sentence to go with it. Participants continue to pass the paper, alternating between writing and drawing. When the paper makes it back to the facilitator, the entire paper is unfolded and read to show the evolution of the sentence. (Warning: This game can easily become inappropriate. Set parameters if desired)
