Celebrity Heads Style Game – Team Building Activity

The first week of school can get hectic! Having a handful of engaging games that serve a purpose is a great way to break up the first few days of the school year. This super fun Headbands Game is one you’ll want to download and have ready when it’s time to talk about teamwork and collaboration! 

How to Play the Forehead Game / Headband Game

To play the game, players each wear a headband (made from a paper strip) and stick a game card on the front (sticky tack works well). This allows the other players to see the card while also ensuring the person wearing it can NOT see it.

  1. Place the cards face down in the middle of the playing area. Have each player place a headband on his or her head. Each player takes one card and, without looking at the printed side, places the card in the centre of his or her headband with the printed side visible to others.
  2. On each turn, students will start the timer and ask the other players “yes” or “no” questions to help them figure out what item is on their forehead. They will ask each player one question, starting with the person on your left. When you’ve asked each other player one question, you may start again as long as the timer hasn’t run out.
  3. At any time that they think they know what the card is, they may ask, “Am I ….?” and if the answer is no, they may continue asking questions.
  4. When players guess their card correctly before the timer (or several questions) runs out, they get to keep the card as a point.The first winner to have three cards/points wins.

This game is best played in small groups. Once students are in their team, they will need to decide who will go first at guessing the word on the card. Place a card on the headband so it’s on the student’s forehead. The members of the team will give you clues to help you guess the word on your card without saying what the word is.
