You will need

  • Pictures of characters or celebrities
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Long piece of paper to make the headband

Make a band to go around the heads of people. To this add a picture of the character or celebrity.

Now hand out the headbands to everyone while their eyes are closed. The aim of the game is to find out who they are by asking questions about their hair, their looks etc. You can make it harder by making the pictures of famous pairs. Like celebrity couples so that they have to find their partner (more info)

Cut out sections of the character or celebrities, so that you can still recognise them but people will need to guess who they are. Stick the pictures onto the large card then let others from your group guess who they are. Try the one we created in Quizzes

As an alternative you can create the quiz on your phone by taking close up pictures of people in the room.

One person picks an idea from either a pile or from the leader, they then throw the dice, if the number is:-

  • 1 or 2 - Make the idea
  • 2 or 3 - Act out the idea
  • 4 or 5 - Draw the idea.

Once someone has guessed the idea, the next person can have a go. © Gaynor Portlock Nov 2007
