The Ambassadors

The Ambassadors


The Ambassadors is a miming game that you can play as a team! It’s intended for older children, therefore the characters or objects to mime out can be difficult!

— I would like you to form two teams. Each team should sit in a group on the two sides of the room facing me. The team captains will join me at the centre of the room. They will be our first ambassadors. I will whisper to them the name of an action, a story, a job or a character. They will have to stand in front of their own team and mime the whispered word. The teammate who thinks he has found the answer should say it very quietly so that the opposing team does not hear it. When the word has been found, the child who has found it must quickly come and see me to get a new word or situation to mime. The team which finishes the list of mimes first, wins. You are 16, so there are 8 mimes for 8 ambassadors. Are you ready?

— Yes!

— Henry and Lucy, (whispering) you will mime the story of Peter Pan. Here we go!

Start with jobs : a juggler, a doctor, a teacher, a policeman, a fireman, a ballet dancer…

Continue with characters : an Indian, a cow-boy, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Spiderman…
