  1. Paper Telephone Worksheet PDF
  2. Paper Telephone Instructions PDF 


  • Print off and distribute a Paper Telephone worksheet to everyone participating.
  • Make sure everyone has a pen or pencil and is sitting in a circle or around a table.
  • Use the Instruction sheet to explain to participants how the game works.
  • Everyone starts by writing a sentence on the first dotted line at the top of their sheet and passes it to their right. 
  • Next, each person will attempt to draw a picture of the sentence in the first box. 
  • When finished drawing, they then fold the paper backward so that only their drawing is visible and then pass the paper again to the right. 
  • Everyone then must write a sentence on the next line that describes what is happening in the picture. 
  • Participants continue this process until the paper is full...remembering to fold the paper backward so that only their entry is visible before passing it onto the right. 
  • The results are usually quite funny and entertaining as you see how the first sentence on each paper morphs into the final sentence.
