That's Weird!

Target Words

bizarre, odd, strange, wacky, weird




Play this "add-one-more" game with your family or a group of kids. If you are already familiar with "I Packed My Grandmother's Trunk," this game is very similar.

  1. Start by saying, Yesterday I saw something really weird. I saw... a dog wearing pants.
  2. The next person will repeat your sentences and add one more detail to the description. For example: Yesterday I saw something really weird. I saw... a dog wearing pants and riding a bike.
  3. Continue around the circle until a player decides to end the chain by saying, Wow! That's really weird.
  4. Start a new round using a different target word. I had a very bizarre sandwich for lunch. It was peanut butter and pickles.
  5. If you wish, you can add pictures to the "That's Weird" game. Draw a starter picture of the first weird thing you name then pass the paper and pencil to the next player who can add the new detail he or she names to the drawing.


Think of some wacky songs you know and sing them with your kids. Camp songs are good, such as, "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," "On Top of Spaghetti," "The Princess Pat," and others.
