How do you play scattergories?

At the top of the page, you will see eight different Father’s Day themed categories. You will have to come up with a word for each category that begins with each letter of the word BEST.

Here’s an example to get you started. One of the categories is “food.” So for the letter B, you could write down “banana.”

This is a great option but if you are really looking to win the game you should try and come up with the most unique word you can. Maybe something like “baked ziti.”

The goal is to come up with answers for each letter and category while also trying to think of words the other players in the game won’t think of.

After the game is over you will compare your answers with all of the other players. If someone came up with the same word as you, you both must cross that word off of your list. Whichever person has the most unique answers at the end of the game, wins!

These are the categories that you will be coming up with words for:

  • Movie
  • TV Show
  • Animal
  • Food
  • Sport
  • Famous Father
  • Father’s Day Gift
  • Something Dad Likes

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
