Famous People Charades

One of our favorite, tried-and-true activities to do as a family is to play charades. I love that we can get out our charades cards and play at a moment’s notice because it is so easy to set up. I also love that it’s something that our whole family can enjoy. 

We have so much fun challenging ourselves and competing to guess each card, and we always find ourselves laughing together at our silly attempts to act things out! We have a blast playing Famous People Charades!

Some of our favorite charades games have been Space Charades and Disney Charades. My kids have the best time deciding how to act out each character or action and then try to take our best guess, so Famous People Charades is a guaranteed hit!

How to Play Famous People Charades

Before you start playing, be sure to grab your Famous People Charades printable cards. Cut them up, put them in a bowl or hat, and you are ready to play.

Round up your family members or friends, and divide into at least two teams. If you have a large group, more teams can make things go smoother.

Decide who will go first. You can decide this however you want! Roll a die, play paper-rock-scissors, or see who can stand on one leg the longest. The first actor chooses a card, and then has 60 seconds to act out that card. Remember, you can not use your mouth to speak, make sounds, or mouth the words! If your team guesses correctly, you win a point! If not, the other team has one chance to guess.

The game ends when everyone’s had a turn, when you’ve run out of cards, or when a team has reached a certain amount of points. The team with the most points wins! It’s so much fun!
