As you might have gathered, my kids are currently crazy for Pokémon. I can go there: I see it as a triumph of kawaii design, and with Pokémon Go informing their ideas of Mixed Reality I figure that it might be one of these areas of knowledge that will be important to them in the future and inscrutable to olds like us. So I try to bridge the gap by playing Pokémon-themed charades as a morning activity every so often.
Whereas charades is often a communication exercise (using "sounds like", breaking things down into syllables, cycling through letters, etc.), Charizard charades tends to be more of an acting exercise for the kids, as they really try to inhabit the roles of random Pokémon.
Or at least that's what I tell myself.
