It’s that time of year. When we are working to organize our homes with lots of Spring Cleaning. But, our houses are not the only thing that needs whipped into shape. Our family relationships need organizing too. What better way to get our families on track, then to play together.
This game is great for kids and adults alike. It is the perfect game to play if it is just you and your spouse, or a large group of people. Whoever happens to be around, grab some play-dough, sit down and have fun.
How to Play
Divide into teams.
Give each team play-dough. We like to give each team a few different colors.
Instead of going through the whole bowl of words to win, you can set a timer. When time is up, the team with the most words guessed, wins.Small teams, such as teams of two will work just fine.If you are playing with just two or three people, take turns sculpting for the whole group, and keep score as individuals. (Set a timer, sculpt, and if your word is guessed in the time frame, you get a point. The person with the most points at the end of the game, wins.)If your children are small and can’t read yet, instead of words, draw pictures and put those on the different slips of paper. Or even create a separate bowl that holds the picture clues. When it is an adults turn, they pick from the words. A child’s turn, they pick from the picture clues.
If you have a really big group. Put one person in charge of the list of words. Send one “sculpter” up from each team to get their first word. They have to run back and sculpt. As soon as their teammates correctly guess the words, a new person from their group runs up to the person with the list and they given their next word. This lets teams run and move around and adds even more fun to the game. The team who successfully gets through the whole list first, wins.
