The most important thing the game inspires, though, is bravery. Each turn requires a performance, and it can be scary for kids to put themselves out there, even in front of their families. But Silly Street Animal Act encourages them to do that in a more light-hearted setting and follow the lead of their friends and parents. The more times kids mime acting like a seal, the easier it gets and the more confident they become.
It might be difficult for younger kids to play on their own if they can’t read some of the bigger words, but adults can always step in to help and make it a learning opportunity.
Silly Street Animal Act is recommended for kids ages 4 and up, but the fun doesn’t just reach the youngsters of the group. Older kids and parents will have just as much fun as they go to desperate lengths to get the other players to guess their card.
No matter your age, and no matter how many times you play, with so many cards and so many ways to depict them, you’re bound to have new reasons to laugh with every round of the game.
