Charades are a great idea for a family fun night! Here are some song charades for a music-themed evening!
All of these song charades are kid-friendly so they are perfect for a family fun evening, a child’s music themed birthday party or just a fun way of spending a rainy day indoors.
Setting up a charades game is easy. Simply print one (or all) of these free printable charades games from the links below, cut along the dotted lines, and drop all of the charades into a pail.
Split your group into 2 teams. Team A chooses 1 person to be the actor for this round. The actor puts his hand in the bucket and (without looking), selects one charade. The actor then silently reads the charade. A timer starts and the actor has a specified amount of time to get his team to guess the charade. There is no talking or pointing in charades…you can only use your great acting skills.
If Team A doesn’t guess before the timer rings, Team B gets one chance to guess the correct answer. Whichever team gets the right answer wins one point. If neither team gets the right answer, no point is awarded.
It’s now Team B’s turn to choose an actor and pick a charade out of the pail.
