How to Play

We recommend playing Bible Pictionary for Kids as a cooperative game, where all players work as a team to achieve a common goal. This is more fun and encouraging especially for young children and it avoids any unnecessary tension that competitive games sometimes create. (To play as a competitive game, see Variation below)

Players take turns to pick a Bible Pictionary for Kids Card and, without speaking, draw the word or phrase. If necessary, the adult facilitator can read and explain the pictionary word or phrase to the child and also suggest what the child can draw. If the child is not confident with that word or phrase, allow swapping for another player to draw (the player who has seen that card must sit out that round).

The other players must try to guess the correct answer within a given time.
(Usually 1 minute, but you may vary this according to the age and skill level of your players.)

It would be good for all players to take turns to draw, but never force any child into that role. Some kids may not be confident with drawing and just enjoy guessing.

Before you begin, set an achievable goal. For example, the goal can be to guess 10 correct Pictionary words or phrases within 10 minutes. (You should vary this goal according to the age and skill level of your players.) If the group collectively achieves this goal, then everyone wins.

Variation

For a competitive game, divide into teams of 2-6 players.

Teams take turns to play.

The team playing sends one player to pick a Bible Pictionary for Kids Card.
Without speaking, that player must draw out the word or phrase on the card while his or her teammates try to guess the correct answer within a given time.
(Usually 1 minute, but you may vary this according to the age and skill level of your players.)

If they get it correct within the time limit, the team scores 10 points.

Play for a pre-determined number of rounds or period of time.
