The Name Game

The Name Game


Play the name game with a sibling, parent or other family member (you could even play this over FaceTime/Skype/WhatsApp/etc. with a family member or friend).  Choose a category (boys names, countries, animals, girls names, etc.) and take it in turns to think of something beginning with each letter of the alphabet. 


E.g. Mrs Williams and Mrs Withers chose the category of ‘animals’

Mrs Williams: antelope

Mrs Withers: bat

Mrs Williams: cheetah

Mrs Withers: donkey



Try different categories.  You could add rules such as; no hesitation, etc.  Have fun!
