How to Play Adjective Charades

  • Print your Adjective Charades cards, cut them up, laminate them for added durability and put them in a bowl or hat to choose from.
  • Gather your group and divide it into two or more teams. If you have a large group, playing with multiple teams can make things go more smoothly.
  • Determine who will go first. To do this, you can flip a coin, play paper-rock-scissors, or come up with your own fun and silly method! 
  • An actor from the first team selects a card and acts it out. Remember, they must not use their mouth at all, not even to mouth out the words. The rest of the team has one minute to guess. If they guess correctly, they get a point! 
  • If they don’t guess it correctly, the other team has only one chance to guess it and steal the point, so make sure you all agree on a good guess!
  • The game is over when you’ve run out of charades cards, when everyone has had a turn, or when you’ve reached a predetermined amount of points. Whoever has the highest points wins!

Tips for Playing Adjective Charades

  • I recommend going over the rules of the game beforehand to make sure everyone understands them! It is also a good idea to discuss what an adjective is before playing. This can help avoid any confusion or frustration during the game. 
  • Actors can use their hands to indicate how many words their team should guess.
  • Don’t be afraid to get a little silly when acting out the cards! This is what makes it fun, and it helps your team to guess the right answer!
  • You’ll want to play this over and over, so you may want to laminate your charades cards to make them last!
  • Have prizes for the winners! Some favorite treats or small toys make it extra fun!

Helpful Tools We Love When Downloading Printables

  • Printer– I love my HP+ printer that uses Instant Ink. I love it because we can use as much color ink as you want for one low cost starting at $.99/ month for ink. Try it out for free here!
  • Cardstock- I always recommend printing on cardstock. This makes it way more durable so you don’t have to worry about printing it time and time again.
  • Laminator / Laminating Sheets- Again, for added durability, grab a laminator and laminating sheets so that you can use this again and again!
  • Scissors (I seriously love these ones)
  • Dry Erase Pens- Use dry erase pens so that you can wipe your laminated printable clean over and over again for endless use!
