Telephone game is one of the fun team building and teen party games.
Not only is this fun for parties, it's often used in school to strengthen memories and concentration skills.
It sounds easy, but it's not.
Even simple messages will turn out to be totally not like they started out.
This activity teaches children the importance of not gossiping as the message they receive or pass on will usually be distorted.
This fosters critical listening skills, concentration and memorization in kids.
They decipher the message they're hearing and then repeat it to the next child.
Have the kids form a circle sitting on the floor. An adult whispers a short message to one of the players to start the round.
That player then whispers the message to the player on his right. That player then whispers it to the player on her right.
Play continues until everyone has heard the message. The last player then says the message out loud.
The first player that heard the message then tells the other kids what the original message was.
The round continues with each player getting a chance to be the original messenger.
