Variations of the Telephone game
These variations help keep the game exciting and engaging, while also helping to develop different skills such as language, creativity, and teamwork.
Instead of passing along the message through whispering, this variation involves drawing pictures to represent the message.
The first person writes a message on a piece of paper and then passes it to the next person, who then draws a picture to represent the message.
The paper is then folded to hide the message and passed to the next person who writes what they think the message is based on the picture. This continues until everyone has a turn, and the final message is revealed and compared to the original message.
This variation involves starting with a word, and then each person adds a new comment to create a chain of words.
For example, the first person might say cat, and the next person might say chases, and the third person might say mice. The chain continues until everyone has a turn, and the final message is compared to the original word.
