Acrobatic Dance FreezeA Fun Dance Party Game for Teenagers and Adults
You will need: Some dance-friendly music.
An entertaining party game to get your guests loosened up on the dance floor is acrobatic dance freeze.
You have probably already played the classic game of freeze dance as a child. This is a more challenging version. It is best played with kids, teenagers, or young adults since you need to be somewhat acrobatic during the contest.
The game is played in pairs. First, start the music and have your guests dancing. When the music stops, one person of the pair must quickly crawl between the other person’s legs and then climb up on their back.
The pair that is last to fulfill this move is out of the game.
Changing Socks in Sleeping BagChallenging Fun Pair Party Game for Kids, Teenagers, and Young Adults
You will need: One or more sleeping bags and a stopwatch.
If you want a party game that is very amusing for the onlookers, this game idea is up for the job. You can play it with kids, teenagers, and young adults.
Divide the contestants into pairs. If you only have one sleeping bag, you can let one pair compete at a time. With multiple, everybody can compete at the same time!
Hand out a sleeping bag to each pair. The pair climbs into the sleeping bag and zips it up. When the game starts, they must change their socks with each other. Then they unzip the sleeping bag and climb out.
You will need: something for taking notes. Pens and paper or smart phones would do.
In this game the participants will tell a story from their life that actually happened. It is the most fun if its something embarrassing, silly or unexpected, but anything will do really. The other participants will then have to guess if the person in question was a child or was drunk when the story took place.
If you never have been drunk you can just tell stories from your childhood.
The game will be most fun if everybody gets a little time to prepare themselves. Maybe they write it down on paper or their smart phones to read out loud. Everyone that guess correctly get 1 point (if you want to compete).
This is the perfect party game when you want to get your guests moving. It is also ideal as a children’s party game when the kids are energetic and need to expend some energy.
Play dance-friendly music that suits the group and let everyone dance. Every once in a while, you stop the music, and everyone must freeze. Now you must judge who is moving too much and is out and must leave the game. Once you’re done, you start the music again. Keep going until only one player is left - the winner.
At a children’s party, it might be more fun for no one to lose and have to leave the game. Instead, everyone can just have fun!
Feet Together RaceFun Outdoor Relay Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: An open space and some strings.
This game can be played both in teams and individually.
The first step is for everyone to tie their own feet together by the ankles using a string. When the competition starts, the participants must make it through a course as fast as possible. They’re only allowed to two-foot jump (or try to wiggle forward). No hands or crawling is allowed.
The course can, for example, be to round a tree in the garden. You pick if you want everybody to compete simultaneously or if you use a stopwatch and let one participant finish the course at a time.
The fastest contestant wins!
Team Relay Game
If you want a team contest, you can play this game as a relay. The team members go one at a time, still with their feet tied together, of course.
When the first participant crosses the finish line, the next member of the team starts.
The first team to finish wins the relay!
All Together Team Relay (Fun Cooperation Competition)
A hilarious version of this outdoor game is to tie the whole team together. First, everyone ties their feet at the ankles, just as described above. Then the team binds themselves to each other. The whole team must be connected, and each member tied to at least one other team member.
Now let the teams try to finish the course as fast as they can. The team that first crosses the finish line wins.
You will need: Questions and a pen and paper for each player.
If you host a party or gathering where you’ll play multiple party mini-games, then this game is perfect! A game about the mini-games, if you will.
Kids, adults, and the elderly can all play this ice breaker game even if they’re not participating in the main event mini-games.
As the party starts, you decide who will play each mini-game and jot down questions of who will win. Then everyone writes down their guesses on their paper.
Example question: Who will win the sack race?
1. Zoe X. Mike 2. Steve
When the mini-games start, everybody will be eager spectators to see if their guesses hold up. The questions decide who plays which mini-game (Zoe, Mike, and Steve will play sack race in the above example).
You’re allowed to guess your own name.
The guest with the best guesses wins this little side game and will have fun even though they might not have participated in any mini-games.
This party game is a lot of fun if your guests know each other well. Play it at a birthday party or as a student party game.
Put a blindfold on one player and have three others stand in a row, shoulder to shoulder. Now the blindfolded player must try and guess who the other three guests are. They are only allowed to feel their faces and hair.
Change players and play again when the blindfolded player has figured out everyones' names!
Du behöver: Lappar att skriva på och en skål att lägga lapparna i.
En festlek som brukar bjuda på många skratt.
Ta 18 post-it-lappar och klipp bort den klistriga remsan. På varje lapp skriver du två passande kroppsdelar t.ex. hand - knä. Vik ihop lapparna och lägg i en skål. Dela in deltagarna i par.
Låt sedan ett lag i taget dra en lapp ur skålen. Lagen ska sedan försöka hålla fast post-it-lappen mellan de kroppsdelar som står på lappen. Det måste inte vara att lappen sitter mellan deltagarna utan vissa lappar kan den ena välja att ta själv som Hand-Huvud om man vill det.
Fler och fler lappar gör det svårare att hålla och det par som lyckas hålla flest lappar samtidigt vinner. Anpassa antalet lappar efter antalet deltagare.
Det går att köra ett par i taget eller att ett par turvis får ta en lapp och sedan får stå i sin ställning medan nästan lag får sin lapp. Man kan göra kluriga varianter och även vara fler än två i varje lag.
Välj innan om ett lag åker ut när de inte kan utföra lappen eller om de istället bara missar chans att ta poäng just den omgången. Lappen viks då ihop och läggs tillbaka i skålen.
En kul charad-tävling som passar ypperligt som festlek för ungdomar och vuxna.
Samtliga deltagare skriver fem lappar var med kända personer på. Lapparna läggs sedan i en skål. Dela därefter in deltagarna i lag om två och två. Nu ska man använda skålen med lappar i tre olika omgångar. Under omgång 1 och omgång 2 får inga gester göras.
Om du vill leka en liknande variant, men där gästerna slipper klura och skriva egna lappar, så finns spelet lappleken som serverar dig allt du behöver.
Omgång 1 - med andra ord
Första omgången börjar med att en person i ett lag drar en lapp. Med ord ska personen sedan försöka förklara vilket namn som står på lappen för sin lagkamrat utan att använda det namn som står på själva lappen. Man har 1 minut på sig. Lyckas man får man behålla lappen, annars läggs den tillbaka i skålen.
Därefter är det nästa lags tur att dra en lapp. Alla gissningar görs inför alla andra, men det är bara det lag som drar en lapp som får gissa.
Det ges 1 poäng per lapp man lyckats klara av. När skålen är tom är det dags för omgång två.
Omgång 2 - med endast 3 ord
Alla lappar viks ihop igen och läggs i skålen. Sen gör man samma sak som i omgång 1, men med nya instruktioner.
I denna omgång får man nämligen bara beskriva det som står på lappen med tre ord (självklart utan att säga vad som står på själva lappen). Man får 1 poäng för varje avklarad lapp. Misslyckas man så viks lappen ihop och läggs tillbaka i skålen och turen går till nästa lag att dra en lapp.
När skålen åter är tom är det dags för den slutliga omgången.
Omgång 3 - charader
Alla lappar viks ihop och läggs i skålen.
I denna omgång får man nu bara använda sig av charader. Det innebär att deltagarna inte får säga ett knyst utan måste använda sin kropp för att visa vad som står på lappen.
1 poäng ges för varje avklarad lapp och man har 1 minut på sig. Misslyckas man får man lägga tillbaka lappen i skålen.
Det lag som har flest poäng summerat efter de tre omgångarna vinner.
Memory GameTricky and Challenging Game for All Ages
You will need: Various small objects placed on a table.
This game is fun to play at a kid’s party or as a party game for adults. It works great for mixed ages as well.
Prepare by placing 10-20 objects on a table. Make sure the names of the objects are well known to all players.
Version 1 - Single Player
Let a player study the objects for 1 minute. Then hide them from view by putting a table cloth over the lot. Now, the player must remember and name as many objects as possible.
The players take turns to play, and the one to recall the most objects wins.
Version 2 - Multiple Players
Let 2-3 players simultaneously study the objects for 1 minute.
Now have the players take turns to call out names of objects. Each correct guess rewards 1 point. The game ends when all objects are named, or no one can remember anything more.
Make sure the number of objects is divisible by the number of players to give everyone the same chance to get points. For example, three players need 3, 6, 9, 12, or 15 objects.
Version 3 - Remember the Correct Order
Arrange the objects into a row in a specific order. Let a player study them for 1 minute. Now, the player must guess the correct order of the objects, from left to right. They get 1 point for each correct guess. If they make a mistake, they’re out.
Then, rearrange the objects in a new order before the next player.
Memory RelayA Fast-Paced Outdoor Relay Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: A piece of text/sentence with a length that suits each team’s participants, pen, and papers.
In this game, the participant needs to memorize a piece of text. This fun relay version is a perfect game to play outside.
Divide your guests into teams and have each team member spread out in a large area with 50-100 yards distance between them.
Now, a piece of text is read aloud to the first person in every team. 1-2 sentences will be enough. Then, the participants must run to the next team member and repeat the text. This person then runs to next and so on till the last team-mate.
The last person in the team must reproduce the text on a piece of paper (or record it on their phone).
The team that can write down the correct words at the proper places in the text in the shortest time wins the game.
Move Cotton Balls With Your NoseA Fun Party Game for Both Participants and Onlookers
You will need: Chairs, cotton balls, bowls, and vaseline.
This party game is fun to play for both kids and adults. It’s also a game where all ages can compete simultaneously. Those not participating will have a great time watching the game, and it is easy to prepare.
I’ve mostly played this outdoors, but it’s a game that works fine indoors, too. If you have the space, that is.
Prepare the game by positioning a couple of chairs with at least seven feet between the chairs. Put an empty bowl on one chair and a bowl filled with cotton balls on the other. Before the competition starts, give each contestant some vaseline on the tip of their nose.
The participants must move as many cotton balls as possible from the cotton bowl to the empty bowl. No hands allowed, only use the nose! It is okay to shake and swing the head to drop the cotton balls in the empty bowl during the game, though.
The player who moves the most cotton balls in 2 minutes wins the game.
This game can be played both in teams or individually. However, it is the most fun if several people are playing simultaneously. Here you’ll need two chairs per player or team.
If you are playing in teams, you simply make it a relay and compete for about 5 minutes total.
Move the FruitFun Kids Party Game (With Relay Option)
You will need: A tennis ball or a suitable fruit (apple, orange) for each team.
This game is played in pairs but can easily be made into a relay. First, each team gets a fruit or a tennis ball. The most commonly used is fruit like an orange. The pair will then move the orange through a course or a specific distance.
The competing pairs stand face to face with their hands on their backs. The couple then places an orange between their bellies. The goal is to move as quickly as possible from start to finish without dropping it.
If the orange is dropped, the pair must pick it up and move back three steps before continuing.
You can easily make this a relay where a pair simply passes the orange on to the next couple after finishing their distance.
This children’s party game can easily be themed for the season. For example, use pumpkins for the Halloween party, eggs for the Easter party, etc.
You will need: Overcooked macaroni and many small items you can lift with your mouth.
In this party game, the participants are not allowed to use anything but their mouths.
The tricky part is that they have to use their mouth to find and pick up small objects hidden in bowls filled with overcooked macaroni. With their hands on their backs the whole time.
Turn this into a competition by counting how many items the players can collect in, say, 30 seconds.
When hosting a children’s party, you can put silly things in the bowls. At an adult party, you can hide some unexpected stuff in the macaroni bowl. And for a Halloween party, you can use scary items such as plastic spiders or fake finger bones.
This may be a good choice if you want to try a different version of the popular game Dance Freeze. This game is just as much fun at a kid’s birthday as at a party for teenagers or students.
In this game, the participants not only freeze when the music stops. In addition, they must follow some instructions for each dance round. For example: get down on your butt the fastest and then freeze.
Turn the game into a competition by kicking the round’s slowest player out of the game. The final round has only two players, and the fastest one to follow the instructions wins!
Make judging easy by filming everything with your phone.
Some Suggestions of Instructions
Get down on your butt.
Lay down on your belly or back.
Stand on one leg.
Stand with only one foot and one hand touching the floor.
Have the butt and the butt only, touching the floor.
Put one foot as high up in the air as you can.
Have one cheek and two knees on the ground simultaneously.
Pandora's BoxA Revealing Party Game for Teens and Adults
You will need: Slips of paper, pens, and a box/bowl.
If you want to play a revealing party game, this is the one.
Let every guest write down questions anonymously on pieces of paper and put them in a box/bowl. Then, later during the party, let one guest at a time draw a piece of paper from the box and read it aloud for another to answer. After answering, that guest draws another question to read aloud.
If you want to, you can prepare the game by writing down some interesting questions of your own. However, the game is supposed to be fun for everyone, so don’t ask mean questions and don’t force your guests to answer questions they don’t want to.
Version of the Game
Read each question aloud and let everybody take turns to answer.
Paper Airplanes CompetitionA Fun and Unexpected Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: A paper for each participant.
This is a fun party game that will engage competitors of all ages. The rules are simple.
Give each contestant a paper. In 30 seconds, everyone must fold some kind of a paper plane. When the time has passed, everyone takes turns trying to throw their plane from the same starting point.
The participants have two throws each in which the goal is to make the plane fly the farthest away from the starting point. Any direction is fine. The best throw for each participant is the throw that counts.
The game can be played both indoors and outdoors. It’s certainly more of a challenge outdoors (due to the wind), and more fun since the planes can fly further away.
If you play the game outdoors, it can be a good idea to throw from a high vantage point or let the participants use a chair.
Playing indoors, you can make the game trickier by adding some rules. For example, the plane must pass through a particular doorway, or maybe it must land somewhere on a sofa.
Pen in the Bottle GameA Very Fun Party Game Idea for Both Onlookers and Players
You will need: An empty bottle, a string, and a pen for each player/team.
This is a hilarious party game to play both in teams and individually. You can have mixed ages and play both indoors and outdoors. The game is also entertaining to watch for your other guests, making this the perfect party game idea.
Each player ties a string or yarn around a pen and then ties the other end around the waist. Let the pen hang from the back. Place an empty bottle 10 yards from each player/team.
When the start signal sounds, the competitors must run to their bottle and try to get the pen into their bottled without using their hands by squatting.
The first player to drop their pen into the bottle wins the game.
The game can easily be made into a relay game. Do the game as described above. When a player succeeds with their pen, they must run back to their team and hand it over to the next person in line. That person ties the string around their waist (with the pen hanging from the back). Then, the player runs to the bottle and repeats the challenge. The team where every member has managed to get the pen into the bottles wins the game.
Use a tampon instead of a pen. Fill the bottles (preferably plastic ones) with water halfway. When the tampon enters the bottle, it will swell and get stuck inside it. To win, the players now must run back and cross the start line (no hands), with the bottle hanging behind them.
You will need: A paper pennant banner, five balls, and a pen.
Pennant banner toss is a game that works fine to play both indoors and outdoors (if it’s not too windy).
Put up a pennant banner and mark each triangle flag with a number. Then, if you want to make the game more exciting, you write some of the numbers with a minus sign.
Then, one player will try to toss the balls at the triangles. If they hit one, they get the points written on it (of course, the player receives minus points if they hit those triangles). Each player gets to make five tosses.
If you have young players, they get to stand closer to the pennant banner. You can use any balls you already own, like tennis balls, for example. Or some fun items like shoes and toilet rolls.
If you want to make the game harder, you let the pennant banner hang free. The easier version is to attach the pennant banner against a wall (suitable for kids' birthday parties).
Pentathlon5 Challenging Mini-Games for Kids and Adults
Holding a pentathlon is great fun for summer parties. The game is simply to compete in five different events, and the one who gathers the most points wins the pentathlon. The events are often simpler games where points are awarded, for example, for hitting targets with a ball.
An important thing to consider when holding a pentathlon is to mind the scoring. Make sure no event awards too many points compared to the others. For example, it is not supposed to be possible to get 50 points for throwing 3 bull’s eye darts in one event and then a maximum of 5 points in another event.
Common events in pentathlon
Throwing horseshoes - Each participant get a bunch of horseshoes that they are to throw at a stake so that the shoe encircles the stakes.
Throwing darts - The participants throw darts at a board or water balloons and get points for each hit.
Buckets - Place buckets on the ground or hang them in different heights and let the participants throw tennis balls at them. Different buckets can award different points depending on the difficulty.
Fill cans with sand or gravel and place them in a tower with three in the bottom layer, two in the middle and one at the top. Let the participants throw tennis balls and try to topple as many cans as possible.
If you don’t want to use traditional games for your pentathlon events but instead try something different you can follow these links for our collections of more modern games. There are games that go well with individual competitions and team competitions.
Pile of ShoesA Fun and Easy Game To Arrange for Kids and Adults
You will need: Teams to compete against each other, and every participant needs to wear a pair of shoes.
No preparation at all is needed in this party game. All you have to do is to divide your guests into teams. You need at least two groups.
Start the game by informing everyone to remove their shoes. All shoes are then mixed and put into a pile.
When the start signal sounds, the teams must run to the pile, find their pair of shoes, and put them on. It is not allowed to throw away any shoes while searching. The first team to put on their shoes will be the winners.
You can play the game both indoors and outside. I’ve played it at kid’s birthday parties and with adults only as a fun team party game. It has always been an appreciated party game that doesn’t take up to much time.
Pop the BalloonsA Fun Balloon Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: Balloons and strings/yarn.
Please choose an area (not too big, it’s meant to be a bit crowded) where the game will be played. Then have everyone tie a balloon to each ankle.
Then let everyone place themselves in the selected area. When the game begins, the players must try to stomp each other’s balloons. It’s not allowed to grab hold of another player or use anything but the feet to pop balloons.
A player who has lost both balloons is out of the game and must immediately leave the playing area. The last player with at least one balloon left wins the game.
When playing in teams, you let all team members wear the same color on the balloons. Then, play as described above.
Play the game and have every team pop the other team’s balloons. No hands are allowed. When only one color remains in the game, you have a winning team.
Scavenger HuntA Fast-Paced Outdoor Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: Some chosen objects to collect.
Put together a scavenger hunt and set your guests on a mission of collecting stuff.
Divide your guests into teams and hand out a list of objects to be found. Then, play it in your garden, neighborhood, or out in the woods.
Prepare the game by making a list with suitable objects of different difficulty to find. The more difficult to find, the more points the objects are worth. Then, decide a time limit for the teams to gather their things. For example, 10-15 minutes is often enough.
If the game mostly has adult or teenage participants, you can come up with some artful objects on the list.
The winners are the team that manages to get the most points during the game.
Alternative Version of the Game
Play the game in different rounds. Announce one object at a time to the teams. The team that finds the object first and returns it to you wins that round and gets 1 point. Then you announce a new thing for every team to collect.
The team that, in the end, ends up with the most points wins the game.
This is a fun party game to play with friends and people you may not know too well. The game has no restrictions on the number of participants, so it works well to play at large birthday parties or student parties.
First, divide the players into teams of 7-10 people. Then, have every team standing in a line.
Now, read out an instruction that has something to do with the order people stand in the line. When instructions are given, the teams must try to arrange themselves in the correct order as fast as possible. The fastest team gets 1 point.
Some Suggestions of Instructions
Sort yourself in order of length with the shortest person first.
Sort yourself in the order of the alphabet. The person with a name starting at A will be placed first in line etc.
Sort yourself in order of age, with the youngest first in line.
Sort yourself with the length of time you have known the birthday person with the longest relationship first in line.
Sort yourself of whom is living closest to the point you are having the party with the nearest person first in line.
Sort yourself in order of how long you have been in your current relationship. All singles will stand first in line.
Spaghetti String Candy HuntFast-Paced Outdoor Candy Game
You will need: Strings of candy (spaghetti string candy).
The players will be up for a candy hunt in this fast-paced, outdoor game. It is the most fun to play in a garden with lots of trees or bushes. Play both adults and kids at the same time! The kids will surely enjoy it.
Prepare the game by placing spaghetti string candy all around your garden. Hang them from tree branches, in the bushes, or at other objects found in your garden. The most important thing is that there are MANY candies. They should also be easy to grab when in a hurry.
When the game begins, all players must run and collect as much candy as possible. The game ends when all candy is taken.
The player who managed to grab the most spaghetti string candies wins the game. But, of course, everyone gets to keep the candy they have collected.
Spit the Candy GameFun Jelly Sweets Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: At least one jelly/gummy candy per contestant.
Games that involve candy are always appreciated! This is a fun candy outdoor game that both kids and adults will enjoy. I tested it on my grandparents, who are over 80, and they found it hilarious.
The game is perfect as an activity at a summer party, children’s party, student party, or really any outdoor party.
It’s much more fun than it sounds!
Prepare the game by putting the candy in water for at least an hour before the competition. This will make the jelly sweets/gummies slimy, and a bit swelled, which makes spitting them that much easier.
Give each contestant a prepared jelly candy. Their task? Stand at a marked spot and spit the candy as far as they can! The longest spit wins.
Team Version of the Game
This is great fun as a team competition too. Simply add up the spitting distance of the team. The team that gets the farthest wins the game.
The 1 Minute GameA Low-Key One Minute Party Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: A smartphone video camera.
This is a super easy game to play as it needs no preparations. All you need is participants.
Direct all participants to stand in a corner/area or in a ring. The goal of the game is to guess when one minute has passed. Each player shows this by sitting down when they think 1 minute has passed.
The player who gets the closest wins. Overshooting is OK, and therefore sitting down after 1 minute and 1 second is better than after 58 seconds.
Start the game and the video recording at the same time. Now you can simply look at the video time stamp to know when someone sat down. The video can also be a lot of fun to show later at the party or share afterward.
The Balloon Race GameEntertaining Balloon Race for Kids and Adults
You will need: Balloons.
This is an entertaining balloon race game for both children and adults. The participants will feel a bit goofy, and the spectators sure will be entertained.
The game works well both as an individual and a team competition.
Each player receives a blown-up balloon to place between their knees. (Give kids smaller balloons than grown-ups.)
When you start the game, the contestants must waddle or jump to try and move forward and round a predetermined point and then hurry back without dropping or popping the balloon.
When someone drops their balloon, they have to pick it up again and run back to restart from the starting point. The rounding point works as a checkpoint. If a player drops their balloon after passing this checkpoint, they only have to run back there, not start all over from the start.
If the balloon pops, the person must run back to the start and blow up a new one. Then return to the place where it popped and continue.
Balloon Race Relay Version
The game can easily be turned into a team relay. The team member that just finished then passes on the balloon to the next member in the team. Each team has its own course and object they must round.
The Paper Bag GameA Fun and Challenging Party Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: A paper bag or a cereal/paper box.
This is a fun party game that needs almost no preparation at all. All you need is a paper bag and participants.
The game is fun to play at a kid’s birthday party but is even more fun when played with adults only.
If you use a paper bag, you cut off the handles (if there are any). When the game starts, the participants will try to lift the paper bag using only their mouths one by one. Hands must be placed behind their backs, and only the feet are allowed to touch the floor.
Every player has one try. If they fail, they are out of the game.
The players who lift the paper bag will compete in the next round. After each round, you cut off a piece of the paper bag to make it smaller. This makes it more challenging for the competitors to succeed.
The player that manages to pick up the paper bag closest to the floor, in the end, wins the game.
After each successful “bite” in the bag, you cut out a piece of the paper bag where the player’s mouth was biting. This will make the paper bag go smaller for each successful player.
The Table Napkin GameA Friendly Ice Breaker Game for Any Number of Participants
You will need: To make sure every guest has a table napkin ready at their seat.
Here is an excellent, low-key game to play when arranging a party with many guests, such as a birthday party, a wedding, or a baby shower. In addition, it’s a perfect ice-breaker game if many of the guests have not met before.
To play, say ten statements aloud for all to hear. Then, everybody who can relate to the statement waves their napkin.
Try to make the last statement one where everyone gets to wave with their table napkin/cloth.
Some Suggestions of Statements:
Who is related to X?
Who studied with X?
Who has traveled for more than 100 miles to be here today?
The WallEasy Low-Key Party Game for Kids and Adults
You will need: A wall and a blindfold for each contestant.
This is a super easy and simple party game that only needs some kind of blindfold for each contestant and a wall. It can be fun to play as a children’s party game or a challenging party game for adults, students, or teenagers.
The contestants all stand in line 15 feet from a wall with their backs facing the wall.
Make sure there is enough space around each contestant so they can’t bump into each other too easily. Now let everyone put their blindfolds on.
When the game begins, the contestants must walk backward. The goal is to get as close to the wall as they can without touching it. Arms must be held across the chest during the game.
If a contestant touches the wall, that person is out of the game but must quietly stay still until the game is over. Then, when everyone has stopped and is confident with their choice of distance, the blindfolds are removed, and the person closest to the wall without touching it wins.
Water Balloon Toss GameA Fun Outdoor Game for Both Kids and Adults
You will need: One water balloon for each couple.
In this game, you let the participants compete in couples. The rules are simple and easy to follow.
First off, give each team a water balloon.
One player begins by tossing the balloon to their partner. Next, the partner tries to catch the balloon without breaking it. If the balloon breaks, the team is out of the game. If the toss and catch are successful, they get to take two steps backward each. Now, it’s time for the second team member to toss the balloon.
The team capable of tossing and catching the balloon, without it breaking, the longest distance wins the game.
A Friendly Version for Kids
If the catching team member touched the balloon but didn’t catch it and the balloon does not break, that team gets another try at the failed distance.
What Is in the Bag?A Fun Party Game Idea for Both Kids and Adults
You will need: 6-10 mysterious objects to be squeezed, and some paper bags for each item.
In preparation for the game, you need to find 6-10 suitable objects. Then, place the objects in separate paper bags and enumerate the bags.
Now, let the participants squeeze and feel the paper bags through without opening or peeking inside. Set a timer to a proper time and have them make guesses on a piece of paper about what’s hidden inside the bags.
The person who manages to guess most of the objects wins the game.
Try to find some objects that are in some way rare or unusual. But, of course, the best things are those that many haven’t seen before.
Now, divide your guests into teams, or have them compete individually. I prefer to play it in games since it’s fun to discuss during the game.
Next, present the participants with some unusual objects placed on a table. Now, they must write down the name of each object and how it is being used. If they don’t know the name, they must come up with one.
Then they hand in their paper to you (one slip of paper for each item). Every item must have a name and a usage before the paper is handed in. Also, make sure that the team has written their own names as well so you can identify them,
Now, you put the papers in piles with one for each object. If you find a correct answer, award these teams/participants 4 points and remove their answers from the piles.
The inaccurate answers are then read out loud together with one correct answer. If they now guess right, you give them 2 points. If a team guesses an incorrect answer, that team who wrote it gets 1 point.
The team/participant that, in the end, has the most points wins the game.
This is a party game where everyone easily can adjust the amount of privacy they want to share.
Provide your participants with 1-2 slips of paper each. Now, everyone must write down a secret about themselves. It can be something stupid they have done, something they are proud of, something embarrassing that happened, or an exciting experience. Almost anything will do.
The most important thing is that the participants are okay sharing it.
The slips of paper are folded and put in a bowl. Then, one piece of paper is drawn and read out loud. Now, everyone must point at the player they believe wrote it. Then, of course, the one whose slip of paper is read points at someone else.
The players that point at the correct person get 1 point each. The game continues until there is no paper left in the bowl. The player with the most points wins.
