FAMILY FUN FRIDAY-Playdough Pictionary

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.

You Will Need

PLAY-DOUGH
Lots of colors is fun, but one color will work just fine also. If you don't have the store bought, no biggie, homemade play-dough will work great too. 

LIST OF WORDS
I have included a list of words for you at the end of the post to get you started. Add any other words you think would be fun, or that would work for your family. 

How to Play

Divide into teams.

Give each team play-dough. We like to give each team a few different colors.
Print off one copy of the words (listed below) for each team. Cut the words into strips and put them in a bowl or baggie.
When you say "GO", one person from each team will choose a word out of the bowl. They will attempt to "SCULPT" that word for their team using the play-dough. They cannot talk, make noises, use actions, or anything else. They can only use the play-dough. The rest of their team is trying to guess what they are making. 

Once someone on their team has guessed, the next team member pulls another word out of the bowl and begins to sculpt. 

This continues, everyone taking turns sculpting, until all the words in their bowl have been guessed. The team to do this first, wins.

*VARIATIONS*

    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.
