This is a quick drill idiom game for small groups (4 players max). Each idiom card has the idiom written and a short quote to put the idiom in some context. The goal is to earn as many stripes as you can by correctly interpreting idioms.
Includes idiom cards (72 total), animal mats to draw stripes on (4 total), and alphabetic answer key. You will also need a black dry-erase marker.
Allow each player to pick a character (bee, zebra, tiger, raccoon). Shuffle all idiom cards and the person who answers is dictated by which animal is on the card that is drawn (for a little added anticipation). Or, separate piles by player and take turns drawing from your respective pile. Or, ignore the characters on the cards completely!
After a player correctly interprets and explains 3 idioms, he/she can draw a stripe on their animal! Replace cards at the bottom of the deck if they were answered incorrectly. You can always adjust and cut off the top part of the animal mat so that each correctly interpreted idiom equals one stripe.
