Elephant! Zebra! Cow! It’s time to test out your acting skills with these Animal Charades. It’s the perfect game for toddlers, adults, and everyone in between.

Animal Charades Ideas For The Whole Family

I’m always searching for activities that my whole family will enjoy. With young kids and older teenagers, it’s hard to find activities that everyone enjoys! One game we do all agree on is a version of our Charades ideas!

It’s always a crowd-pleaser! It’s so simple that even your little ones can play, but you’ll still have fun even as an adult. 

My kids especially love playing animal charades. Acting like different animals is so much fun! Plus, it could be a great way to learn about different animals with your kids!

Why I Love Family Game Nights

Game nights are a huge priority in my house! Not only do I look forward to them because I love playing games, but it’s also a great break in my week to spend some quality time with my family.

Life gets so crazy and having time to sit down together and laugh is such a relief.

Game night doesn’t have to be something crazy either. Activities like animal charades are so easy but will make all the difference!

How to Play Animal Charades

To play animal charades, start by printing out all these animal charade cards! Cut them up and put them in a hat, bowl, bag, or whatever you have around. 

Split into 2 teams and take turns picking an animal out of the bowl. Have the person who turns it in act out the animal to their team. If the team guesses the right animal, they get a point. 

Play to a certain number of points or set a time frame and whoever gets the most points wins!

I love to keep around little prizes for game winners and it would be so much fun to have a fun animal themed bookmark, stickers, or something else animal related for the winners.
