Put that stack of magazines to use

The next time you need a quick game that requires very few supplies, give your old magazines another look. Hand each player a few issues, than try these two fun contests.

Scavenger Hunt: Players take turns naming a word or image that might be found in a magazine and everyone else tries to be the first to locate an example in their stack.

Sketch Artist: Without showing the others, one person describes a picture from one of her magazines, giving as much detail as possible. The other players draw their own versions of the image, then share their interpretations.
