What You'll Need:

  • Slips of Paper
  • A Pen or Marker
  • A Mixing Bowl (or anything to hold the slips of paper)


Before the party, write the names of several kitchen utensils on slips of paper. Here are some suggestions:
  • Whisk
  • Measuring Cup
  • Colander
  • Cutting Board
  • Grater
  • Rolling Pin
  • Spatula
  • Skillet
  • Garlic Press
  • Measuring Spoons
Place all of the slips of paper in a mixing bowl, hat, or basket.

At the Party:
  1. Have one guest pick a slip of paper from the bowl.
  2. If the guest is unfamiliar with the chosen utensil, you may the child into another room, show him or her the item, or describe it.
  3. The guest then has 25 seconds to provide clues that will help the other players guess the utensil.
  4. The child may use words, hand motions, or drawings to help the other players guess the correct utensil.
  5. The first player to correctly guess the utensil gets to be the leader of the next round, drawing and describing another utensil to the group.
  6. If no one says the correct name of the item after 25 seconds, display the actual utensil for the players to see.
  7. The first player to call out the name of the item is the leader for the next round.
