Sentence Challenge – Nouns and Adverbs

Designate one person to silently think of a noun (stream, for example).  Another person silently thinks of a adverb (distractedly, perhaps).  A third person will be challenged to create a sentence that uses the noun and adverb supplied by the other players.

  • I ambled along distractedly, absorbed in my thoughts, completely missing the beauty of the glistening stream flowing beside the trail.
  • (hurricane, sweetly) "Not even a hurricane could get me to leave my house before I've done my hair and makeup," the woman batted her false eyelashes and smiled sweetly.
  • (popsicle, pedicure) Your pedicure makes your toes look like ten tiny popsicles.

Then rotate the play so that different people supply nouns and adverbs for a different player's creative sentence.  If only two people are playing, the sentence builder will name a noun and then the other player will supply the pre-determined adverb.

Amble Alongside the Stream

I gazed intensely at the tumbling waterfall letting it hypnotize me with its beauty..

What If? – Unbounded Answers

Start with one person posing an unlikely question (children are usually very good at this).

  • What if leaves fell up in Autumn instead of down.

Now take turns coming up with creative and unusual answers.

  • They used to do that.  Now we call them stars.
  • The sun would burn them up and we could roast marshmallows in the sky.
  • An alternate universe would be formed where people walk upside down.
  • They would gather in the clouds and come down during rainstorms.
