How to Play 4th of July 5 Second Game

Playing this 5 second game is easy. You will first want to divide the group into teams. Once divided into teams the fun can begin. 

Teams will take turns drawing a card from the pile. Once the card is drawn, the timer will start. The reader on the team wil read the topic on the card and then the whole team will then have 5 seconds to name 3 things related to the topic on the card. 

If the topic on your card is “Independence Day”, you might say fireworks, flag, and stars. If the team is able to give 3 answers that make sense for the topic in 5 seconds, they get to hold onto that card. The first team to collect 20 cards wins. You can also play that the team that has the most cards after a certain period of time (30 minutes at our house) wins! Be speedy and have fun!
