Curious George Birthday Party
- animal cards (PDF)
- hat, bowl or other container (such as an empty animal-cracker box)
- Not all young kids have played charades. You may want to model this activity first by picking an animal card and "pretending" to be the animal. Ask the guests to guess what you are.
- Next, ask a volunteer to pick an animal card. If the child seems shy or uncertain suggest he/she make the animal's sound or movements.
- Players can call out answers individually or as a group without raising their hands. Turns aren't based on who calls out the correct answer first. Instead, everyone gets a chance to pick a card and act out an animal.
For more monkey madness try this: Once party guests correctly identify the animal, encourage them to try becoming that animal, "Everybody be a monkey!"
