Here is a game for two players – siblings, friends, classmates or you and your child! It is very flexible – children can play in a very simple way or they can use their imagination and use more difficult words and sentences.
Print and cut out these cards and give one to each player. You can change the details using the blank 'Answers' card – perhaps use your child's favourite character.
One player 'interviews' the other, using the 'Questions' and 'Answers' cards. This can be quite simple, for example:
A: What's your name?
B: Invisible Man.
A: How old are you?
B: I'm 12 ... etc.
Or more confident players may want to use their imagination and use more complex language:
A: Please could you tell me your name?
B: I'm the Invisible Man.
A: The Invisible Man? Wow, it's great to meet you. Could you tell me how old you are?
B: Actually, today's my 12th birthday ... etc.
For an extra challenge, children can produce their own cards following the example, and conduct their own interviews. You could even film the interviews to watch later. Allow creativity, props and laughs. Focus on having a good time and try to make it memorable!
You can see two brothers, Tomás and Gonçalo from Portugal, playing this game here.
