    Blindfold Drawing Challenge!

    You'll need: paper, pencil, blindfold.

    Pick a category (animals, jobs, actions, feelins, places, etc.)

    One player wears a blindfold and has to draw something related to the category you picked.

    The partner player must guess what it is within 60 seconds!! (too easy? try in 30 sec)

     

    Alternative:

    One drawer wearing the blindfold, and two guessers. Whoever guesses it first, will be the next "blind drawer".

    Exploring constellations! ✨💫🌟

    Use a piece of paper to draw the constellations posted under this line. Feel free to be creative with the colors of the stars.

    * If you have black paper, you can use white crayons to connect the stars, which can be also stickers from the dollar store.

    ALTERNATIVE:

    Projecting your constellations.

    - 1. Draw your constellation (on card stock, if possible).

    - 2. Make holes where the stars go.

    - 3. Use a flashlight to project your constellation on the wall (get close to see it better!).

    OPTIONAL:

    Download the Sky View App (free) for Android or iOS and explore the constellations you drew before.

    Play "Word-Number Chain"

    - In a circle, players count by turns, one by one, up to 10.

    - The person who says "ten" must change a number by a word. I.e.: change "3" by "dog"

    - Start over with the new rule: "one", "two", "dog", "four", "five",...

    - The game ends when all the letters have been changed. If a player gets it wrong, he/she's out of the game or you can just start over without eliminating players.

    - I was too easy? Try up to 20!
