For this game, some pairs of cards should be prepared in advance. The number of cards has to be equal to the number of participants. Each pair of cards has on it the name or the image of an animal. To increase the game’s difficulty, you could choose some animals with similar features (e.g. fly, pigeon, mosquito, etc.). Each participant receives a card, without showing it to anyone. Then, the players start to mime the animals on their cards, but they are not allowed to produce any noise. At the same time, each player has to find his/her partner. The game is over, when everybody has found his/her partner.

To build groups of e.g. 3 people, the facilitator can also prepare 3 cards showing the same animal.
