5 Games You Can Play to Make Your Party More Fun
Are you ready to liven up your party?
All it takes are some great games, many of which do not require any equipment. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Everyone sits in a circle or a row, and the game leader calls out: Mail call for…” and fills in the blank with something that several people share in common. This can be the kind of clothes they are wearing or their habits or even pets they own. This games works best as an icebreaker, to get people to talk about their similarities and things they have in common. When the mail call is made, those who share the called out traits have to switch seats. But if you call out for everyone wearing blue to change seats, then they haven’t learned anything new about each other. Instead opt for something like: “Mail call for everybody who has a cat.”
This is a relay race where people are divided into teams. They sit at one end and bags of mystery food sit at the other. A team member runs to the bag and eats the food as fast as possible then returns so the next member can go. The crazier and weirder the foods are, the better.
Hide goodies in your home or around your yard. Then have everyone go looking for them. You can divide them into teams and even supply them with clues. If you are really ambitions, you can extend your treasure hunt into the city or a park. Just give everyone a way to stay in contact, and make sure each team has at least one member with a cell phone.
Photo Booth Contest
You can make this a group activity or everybody for themselves. What you’ll need is a photo booth hire from someplace like Treasured Mems. Then you have your guests take the wackiest pictures they can. For teams, just have them take group shots. Once the photos print out, they can be judged on how their photos compared to everyone else’s.
I Love You
This is a great icebreaker that is sure to crack up your friends. You have two people sit across from each other. One of them says, “I love you. Won’t you smile for me?” See how long the other person can hold a straight face.
