What You'll Need:

At the Party:
  1. Hand each child an index card and ask them to read the card silently.
  2. One at a time, have each child to read their tongue twister out loud once.
  3. If they say it correctly they stay in the game. If they make a mistake they are out.
  4. After everyone has read their card, the players still in the game pass their card to the person to their right.
  5. One at a time, have each child read their new tongue twister two times fast.
  6. Once again, if they say it correctly they stay in the game. If they make a mistake they are out.
  7. Continue playing each round by increasing the number of times the tongue twister has to be said until one person is left. That person is the winner!

Alternative Play: Ask the children to use a Tow-Mater southern accent while reading their tongue twister! Or see if anyone can read all the tongue twisters correctly.
