Bridal Shower pictionary is fun, funny, interactive and memorable! A great way to bring the laughter to your best friend's special day; from the bridal pictionary words through to fun alternative ways to play, this article will have you nailing this awesome game in no time! For instructions see below.
HOW TO PLAY BRIDAL SHOWER PICTIONARY
YOU WILL NEED:
Bridal pictionary clues (click here for a free printable), something you can mix the clues in (such as a hat or bowl), paper, somewhere to display the paper (i.e. bluetak to the wall, place on a frame) and pens/textas.
Handy hint: If you have a blackboard and chalk or a whiteboard and markers, these could be used in place of paper/pens/pencils.
Before the party, cut paper into small rectangles and, on each piece, write a fun word related to bridal showers, weddings and/or couples. We recommend coming up with at least 15 different options. Some example bridal shower pictionary words include:
Once you have your bridal pictionary words sorted, fold them up and place them into a hat or bowl. Place this hat/bowl next to some textas, pens and a stack of paper.
Ensure that the paper is displayed so that everyone at the party can see what is being drawn (e.g. attached to an easel, blutacked to the wall, etc.)
Now the fun really begins... it's game time!
To play, start by splitting guests into two teams.
Flip a coin to see which team draws first, with the winners picking themselves a 'drawer' (that is, the first person who gets to make their way to the front, randomly grab a pictionary word from the hat/bowl, and attempt to draw what is written).
To get the game underway (and as briefly mentioned above), it is the drawers job to quickly sketch the phrase/object written on her chosen card. However, she cannot, no matter how hard it may be, talk while her masterpiece takes form!
Whilst she's busily drawing away, the rest of her team-members must try their hardest to guess what the phrase/object is. But this is where it gets hard... the drawing and the guessing must happen within one minute.
Once the buzzer goes, that round is done and dusted. If the team managed to guess the picture correctly before the timer went off, they receive one point. If they didn't, no points are assigned and it's the next team's turn to take the plate.
Teams continue to take it in turns demonstrating their drawing abilities (a new drawer is selected each time) until you either run out of cards or call it a day. The team with the most points at the end of the bridal shower pictionary game, wins!
EXTRA TIPS FOR THIS BRIDAL SHOWER PICTIONARY GAME
Rather than tossing each picture straight into the recycling bin, why not display your masterpieces like the beautiful art they are?! Attach them with little pegs to string and hang across a wall/between trees. Guests and bride-to-be can then vote for their favourite/funniest/worst drawing overall (anonymously, of course!). The person who wins their category receives a prize!
ACT IT OUT
Take this game up a notch! If teams fail to guess the word/phrase being drawn within the time limit, half of that team (i.e. Team A) must make their way to the front and act it out as a group (like charades)! If their remaining team members can guess what is being acted out in front of them, within 30 seconds, they still get one point for the round! Whilst this is all happening, Team B can simply take a seat and enjoy the show... until the buzzer goes and it's potentially their turn to perform!
