Play-Doh Pictionary

Game Description:

Play-Doh Pictionary is a super easy game to explain and works great for when you want a student ministry game that gets students interacting in small groups. It does require some pre-planning as the Pictionary words have to be cut into slips for each team, but it’s definitely worth the effort.

Materials Needed:

  • 1 container of Play-Doh per team
  • Pictionary words (You can see the ones I used here.)
  • Scissors
  • 1 sandwich bag per team to hold Pictionary words
  • Recommended: One paper plate per team (to keep the Play-doh off the tables if needed)


  1. Divide the room into teams of 5-7 students. If desired, you can compete by grades, gender etc.
  2. Give a representative from every team a container of Play-Doh. The representative has 30 seconds to sculpt as many words as they can as the team guesses. The team gets one point for every correct answer. If they pass on a word, they lose a point.
  3. After the 30 seconds, have the representative pass the Play-Doh to a teammate and set the timer for another round.
  4. The team with the most points after the second round wins.


**Note: To modify to a small group game, have every other person be on the same team. Have one team sculpt and guess the first round while the second team watches. Then during the second round, the second team tries to beat the number of points the first team earned. Repeat rounds as needed.**
