“Quick Draw, Art!” Charades
Theme: Collaborative art
Type of Activity: Critical thinking skills, Art project
Goal: Use critical thinking skills in order to create drawings.
Location: Living room
Age level: All Ages
Think to yourself a person, place, or object, and keep it in mind. Without telling your teammate, begin to draw whichever item you have in mind to the best of your ability. Could be a unicorn, could be a piece of pizza, could be anything you can imagine. Keep drawing until your partner correctly guesses what the drawing is- switch off taking turns after each win. An extension would include acting out what's in mind rather than drawing it. Could be a roaring lion, could be an ice cream sundae, have fun with it.

Hidden Maze Game
Grade Level: K-5
Individual or multiple people: 2+ people
Theme: Active, Puzzle, Memory
Pillows or painting tape
Location: A medium to large space with enough room to make a maze
Instructions: Create a checkerboard pattern on the floor, either with pillows or painter’s tape. Designate one corner square as the maze “entrance” and another corner square as the maze “exit.” Draw the same checkerboard pattern on a piece of paper and make a hidden maze that makes a path over the squares from the entrance to the exit. Now, have kids take turns trying to move through the maze - by stepping on a square that is adjacent to the entrance square and checking to see if that is part of the path drawn on the paper. If it is, they can stay on that square and wait for their turn to be next. If it isn’t, they must go back to the beginning and try again when their turn comes back around. Continue this pattern with each turn, so that they try and guess the next square in the correct path, and so on. The goal is to make it to the end of the maze by remembering the correct path - it gets harder the further you get!
