Play the gossip game “telephone” to see how the rumor changes from the first person to the last person.


We played “Rita Skeeter”, which is a variation of “telephone”, where the first person starts a “rumor” (a phrase from the book, or just anything, really) by whispering in the ear of the next person and so on until it comes back to the first person, who says it out loud. The final phrase is never even close to what was originally said! It's fun to wear wild sunglasses when you're the one starting the rumor.
