Word Games

Type: Group

Equipment: None

Setup: Everyone sits or stands in a circle

Extra Measures: Ensure everyone is 2m apart


Play Animal Alphabet (working through the alphabet naming animals that start with that letter). The first person says ‘I went to the zoo and saw an’ and then say an animal beginning with ‘A’. The next person in the circle says ‘I went to the zoo and saw an’ and they name the animal first mentioned beginning with ‘A’ and then they add an animal beginning with ‘B’. Carry on round the circle.

Alternatively you could say “I’m going to the shops to buy…” (where each person adds an extra item to the list and has to remember all the items already added). They don’t necessarily have to be in alphabetic order.
