Superhero Pictionary Ideas
It's no secret that we love to play board games as a family. Not only are they fun, but they provide lots of learning opportunities too!
We also love all things super hero too, so my kids assisted with creating this list of pictionary prompts all about superheroes.
You can easily make your own set of clues by writing characters, actions, and phrases from your family's favorite movies and comic books on slips of paper.
To save you some time, we have a printable word list with 50 Pictionary prompts using super hero characters, actions, and items found in movies and comics that you can print out at home.
The Superhero Pictionary printable set is File 131 in our resource library. (Fill out the form at the bottom of this post to receive the password for free access if you do not have it already.)
A few examples include: Thor’s hammer (Mjolnir), a cape, bow and arrow, and Wolverine.
Once you print and cut out the clues, 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 guesses.
One way to modify this is to let each child take a turn drawing and have the other children guess. This keeps it a fun activity regardless of the number of kids and removes the focus of team competition.
Not only is playing games fun, they have social and educational benefits for kids. This game helps kids to think differently about communication.
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.
Plus, they need to quickly process what they are seeing and make connections to figure out what is being drawn.
OTHER HELPFUL ITEMS:
- Laminator – print and laminate the clues before clipping so they last longer
- Sand timer for limiting the amount of drawing and guessing time
- Small dry erase board for drawing and scores
- Hole punch and book rings – take the game on the go!
