Creature Charades

 

Things you’ll need:

A Pen or pencil
Slips of paper
A hat or bowl

 

Before the guests arrive:

Step 1:  Write the name of something scary on each slip of paper.  Some suggestions:

Whomping willow
Death Eaters
Spiders
Professor Snape
Ghost
Vampire
Dementors


Step 2:  Put all the pieces of paper in the hat or bowl.

 

When the guests arrive:

Step 1:  Tell the children that a Boggart is a creature that becomes whatever a person fears most.  Tell them you have a hat/bowl full of Boggarts that are going to try and scare them!

Step 2:  Explain that the only way to make the Boggart go away is to yell out the name of the scary things, and then the magic word, ‘Riddikulus!’

Step 3:  Have each child select a piece of paper.  Tell them that they have to act out what’s on the paper, without talking.  The other children should try and guess what the scary thing/person is.

Step 4:  When someone guesses correctly, the Boggart “vanishes”, or goes back to their seat.  Then the next Boggart has a turn trying to frighten the guests.

Step 5:  You might want to give each Boggart a small prize when their turn is completed.
