Halloween Garland & Charades Game

You'll be amazed at just how much imagination the kids have when you play this child's version of Charades. Even the 3 year olds had a blast acting out the parts, and everyone laughed til their sides hurt.

A wonderful game for all ages!


  • Plain printer paper or colored construction paper
  • Printer (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Thread/string
  • Tape
  • Clothes Pins (optional)
General Instructions

    1. Print out desired quantity of graphics (at least 1 per child) on printer paper then cut them out; or cut out your own shapes from colored construction paper.
    2. Write poem (action to perform) on back of each graphic (suggestions below).
    3. Tape or attach a double layer of thread/string on wall.
    4. Tape or attach (with clothes pins) each graphic onto thread to form a garland.

How to Play

Have each child choose a graphic from the garland. Read the back of the graphic and the child must act out the poem instructions. Be sure to print at least 1 per child. But you will certainly want to print at least 2 per child, because at our party all the kids were yelling ďletís play again!Ē.
