Harvest Word Games

Harvest Word Games (7)

To finish the fun with Travis’s Harvest Party Raddish Kids, it was time for harvest party games! These were fun to play just with our family, but would also be the perfect games if you’re able to safely social distance with extended family. Perhaps over a tractor harvest-themed party?

First up was Autumn Doodles. Shuffle a pile of harvest word cards. (Note: Raddish provided these, but you could also make your own.

Write an autumn word or phrase on each slip of paper, such as “apple picking” or “hay ride”).

Select a card (we got “scarecrow”) and everyone in the family then draws their interpretation! We simply had fun laughing and checking out each other’s different takes on the same topic. Older kids might want to make it a competition, in which case you can appoint a judge who picks the “best” drawing.

Next up: Fall Danger! One player picks a card and then has to describe that harvest word, but can’t say three danger words listed below it (e.g. for “apple cider” you couldn’t say “juice” “drink” or “fruit”). This one was a little hard for Travis to grasp, but he caught on after his dad and I demonstrated a few rounds! If you’re playing with a larger crowd, make teams.

You won’t be able to play the final game with anyone outside of your COVID-19 bubble since this one does involve leaning in close, but get ready for… Farmer’s Telephone!

This one had us roaring with laughter. For example, “I like the smell in the kitchen when I’m baking a pie” turned into “I like the smell of witches while they’re drinking rye” turned into “I like smelly witches!”
