Rhyming Answers Game
A little lateral thinking can go a long way to encourage the mind to come up with new ideas. The ‘Rhyming Answers Game’ is a fun way to keep thinking fresh. I have used this with students of dramatic arts and English. The game always proves lively and entertaining, and it definitely enhances their abilities as thinkers and communicators.
In essence, they are asked to answer a question in rhyme. It may be one they come up with themselves or one that is given to them. Here are two examples:
Q. Do you like insects?
No, not really.
They have too many
Spindly legs and when
They move, I think they look
Mad and scary.
Q. Would you love to go to outer space?
I think it would be amazing.
I would fly through the Milky Way
And do close-up star gazing.
I’d do flick-flacks all along
Jupiter’s glowing ring
And sing a rock song
I’d float way above every moon
And shout down to Earth ‘’I love
It up here so I won’t be coming back
Any time soon.
That’s it for now. Thank you for reading.
As per usual, ‘’Happy Creating’’.
Please note: I first came across this game in a book called Party Games for Children by Mary Vivian.
