Disney Pictionary Ideas
I remember playing the original Pictionary game growing up. In fact, I still have it! There were so many cards with a wide variety of words and phrases to draw, but a lot of them were challenging as a kid.
Since then, there have been newer versions created as well as other types of drawing games, such as Telestrations, one of our family’s favorites.
You can easily make your own Disney themed version using Pictionary phrases from your family’s favorite movies and characters and writing them on slips of paper.

How to Play Pictionary
The main item you need (besides players) are words to draw!
From there, the basic game play consists of someone picking a card and drawing the word while other players try to guess what they are drawing.
Generally players are split into two teams. Each person on the team will rotate to take turns drawing while the others shout out their guesses.
Players don’t have a lot of time to think about what they will draw. It’s designed to be drawn quickly rather than super detailed as the rest of the team tries to guess correctly before the timer runs out.
There are a few other ways you can play this game:
If the drawing team doesn’t guess right before time is up, the other team can make a guess to steal the point.
Instead of teams, each person takes turns drawing and the one who guesses correctly gets the point. Or the person drawing gets the point when someone guesses right.
It’s easy to modify and adapt the game depending on the age and number of children playing. Sometimes team party games are difficult for smaller families when using traditional rules.

Benefits of Playing Disney Pictionary
Playing games have social and educational benefits for kids. This game helps kids to think differently about communication.
For example, drawing squiggly lines can provide additional context and meaning to the rest of their picture.
They need to think quickly about what their word or phrase is and how to draw it. Some words and phrases may seem simple, but how exactly do you draw that?
This helps kids practice reasoning skills, nonverbal communication skills, as well as creative problem solving. They need to think about what their team will understand as they draw.
For the players making guesses, they are practicing nonverbal communication (seeing the drawing) as well as verbal communication (saying their guess).
They are also problem solving based on context clues given in the drawing and even how their teammate reacts and responds to their guesses.
Plus, they need to quickly process what they are seeing and make connections to figure out what is being drawn.
Tips & Tricks for Playing Disney Pictionary
Playing Pictionary games with your little ones doesn’t have to be complicated, but here are some tips and tricks to make the game even more enjoyable:
- Get a timer! This is an important element of Pictionary, since it creates tension and encourages faster drawing.
- Make sure you have enough space on the table for everyone’s drawings. It also helps to spread out around the table.
- Encourage your children to use a variety of drawing techniques – it’s important to have fun and be creative.
- Have a few different colors available for your kids to use, as this can make their drawings more interesting.
- If the word is too difficult for your child, help them out but don’t give away the answer! Instead, provide clues that will help them figure out the answer.
- Last but not least, laugh and have fun! Pictionary is all about having a good time with your family.
