  • Oh Snap!

    February 10, 2010


    There are no materials required for this game, just creativity and a good sense of fun! Oh Snap, or Catch the Snap, is a new take on the classic "pass the ball, say your name" game. Instead of a ball, you have...your hand! 

    What is this game? What do you do? 

    First, appoint a leader of this game.

    Make everyone scramble in the room, but make sure everyone's close to each other.

    The leader then begins snapping. He or she now has "The Snap" (the ball).

  • Signs

    February 03, 2010


    This is a fun game that's not hard and easy for a group of almost any size.

    How to play:

    Everyone sits in a circle. There is one person who is "it." There is an imaginary sign being passed around the circle. The person in the middle hast to catch the person who "has" the sign.

    Everyone has their own "sign."  These signs can be simple or complicated, like a thumbs up or scraching your ear or something like that. 

    The person who starts with the sign can pass it by doing another person's sign. The other person has to respond with his own sign to receive the "sign." This continues around the circle until the person in the middle figures out who has the sign.

  • Zoom

    January 31, 2010


    What you'll need:

    Photos from magazines, newspapers, the Internet or photos taken by yourself.
    You'll need at least one photo for each person.


    Create groups of 5-7 people or larger.

    Mix up the photos, face down and then have each person pick one photo.

    Each person has a picture but they cant show it to anyone.

    The group then tries to come up with a story from some photos.

    It takes a lot of patience and understanding to keep the story going in the direction that the first person started off with. 

  • Balloon Bust

    January 30, 2010


    Divide into two groups.

    Form two lines. 

    Each person gets a balloon that's inflated. 

    The first person in each line is given instructions on what to do with their balloon (ex: dribble balloon to wall and back, kick ballon, balance baloon on foot, etc.). 

    Once they have completed the task, they return to their starting point at the front of the line and sit on their balloon until it pops.  Only after it pops can the second person in line begin the assigned task that was given. 

    Again, after they've completed the task, they return to their place in the line, and sit on their balloon until it pops. 

    The first team to pop all its balloons, wins.

  • The Toilet Paper Game

    January 15, 2010


    All you would need is a brand new roll of toilet paper. Any kind works. You go around your group telling each person to take how ever many sheets they use when they go to the bathroom. You cannot tell them what the toilet paper is for until after everyone in the group has a few sheets. After everyone has a few sheets of toilet paper, they have to write one fact about themselves on one sheet of toliet paper.

    For example: I take 10 sheets of toilet paper, I would have to write 10 facts about myself on each sheet of toilet paper. Like I have 3 brothers and 1 sister.

    To make the game more fun, have your group members write random facts that they never told anyone before or facts that don't seem like it would be their thing they like to do.
