19 Sep Team Mimes
To play Team Mimes, you must first make the teams and then give out a list of things to choose from (objects, characters, or animals according to the ages of the children).
— Well done! I’d like you to stay in your places. Do you know how to do mimes?
— Yessss! Nooooo…
— I’m going to whisper an animal, a character or an object to one of you and you need to make your friends guess what is it whilst only making gestures and actions. You can’t speak!
— I’m going to choose one person from each team to have a go. The first team which guesses what the person is miming correctly, wins a point. Jules, come beside me, you’re going to mime… a tiger. Well done! Jeanne, it’s your turn.
To start with, animals: a chicken, a lion, a snake, an elephant, a kangaroo, a cat, a frog, a horse, a tortoise, a wolf, a monkey, a mouse, a fish…
Then, an action: driving a car, flying a plane, skiing, skateboarding, looking after a baby, waking up, playing tennis, boxing, playing the violin, dancing, crying…
If that’s too easy, professions and characters: a juggler, a doctor, a teacher, an Indian, a Cowboy, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Spiderman…
If there are fewer children, you can play the same game but without teams.
If you’re in a team and you’ve forgotten to keep track of your score, don’t worry, it doesn’t matter too much!
