18 Sep Funny Faces
Funny Faces is both a circle game and a variation of the game “Chinese Whispers”. You can do the two games one after the other, children love doing a series of circle games. To go from one game to the other, all you need to do is whisper a sentence.
— We’re going to make a circle and all sit down cross-legged. 1, 2, 3, everyone on the ground. Can you pull your most terrifying face for me ? Not bad, not bad. We’re going to play “funny faces”. I’m going to make a funny face to my neighbour and then my neighbour is going to try and imitate it the best that they can. Then their neighbour is going to try to imitate it and we will continue until it gets back to me. Does everybody understand ?
— I’m going to complicate things just a little bit. You’re not allowed to laugh or smile when someone is making a face at you. When the last person has made their funny face, we will compare all of the faces from start to finish.
— Are you all ready ?
You can do several rounds of this game. Each time, a different child can be the first one to pull the funny face. You can also give them an emotion to follow at the start like joy, fear, anger or an animal like a lion, a fish or an elephant for example.
