ActivityEdit

One page fits four lists of 12 categories comfortably, and will take about an hour to finish. Musical Scattergories demands a lot of executive functioning. Be creative when developing categories, but be clear in your wording and aware of your population. “Something that smells like teen spirit” is clever, but confusing for most players. Categories may include music genre; artist; song; instrument; hits from the 60’s, etc.; lullabies; songs about, or with a specific word in the title, love, the weather, travel, colors, etc.; something a rockstar might sign; actors; actresses; types of dances; emotions music can make you feel, and miscellaneous categories as appropriate and necessary. Groups may also brainstorm their own lists, or lists can effectively be used to address specific topics and goals.
