Drama Games to play with 2-4 people

    Hello hive mind,

    There are so many great online resources showing up now!  As I work to provide activities for my students (which offer enrichment, practice skills already taught, are ungraded, and do not advance the curriculum), I realize that I am short on a specific category of activities.

    So, what drama games can you think of that can be played with just 2-4 people?  I'm working on games that can be played at home with family members, rather than online.  The goal is a bit of drama, with a heavy dose of family bonding and fun.  I am specifically looking for middle school (and elementary) appropriate games.

    So far I've suggested:
    Reverse Charades (whole group acts, one person guesses)
    Staring Contests (don't smile!)
    "Honey, I Love You"

    We have a minimum of five more weeks at home.  And, of course, all my textbooks and game books are in my office at school.

    Hang in there, everyone.
    Well wishes,

    There are tons on the site Improv Encyclopedia. Look there for what specific skill you want to address.
