Guess someone’s identity by feeling them with wooden spoons.
One of the guests is blindfolded, and sits upon a chair. He or she is then given two large wooden spoons, such as in common use in every kitchen for stirring puddings, cakes, and so on.
One after another, the other boys and girls come up to the blindfolded sitter and stand or kneel before him/her, and he/she has to guess who each one is by simply feeling him or her with the wooden spoons.
The task is very much more difficult than it looks and is great fun as the spoons go over the face and body in an attempt of the blindfolded person to discover the identity of the other.
Of course, any outburst of laughter when the spoons are going over a face would disclose the identity, so participants must keep perfect silence.
When anyone's identity is guessed, he/she has to be blindfolded and must take the spoons.
Be careful when using the spoons to touch another person with them quite lightly, so as not to hurt anyone. Any player who wears glasses should remove them
Act it Out
Silly scenes acted out by participants who have no idea what they are acting out.
Four people are chosen for the round and three of the four are taken out of the room. The one that remains is told to mime one of the following (or one of your own ideas) in approximately 20 seconds:
1. Changing the diapers of twins
2. Bathing an elephant
3. Jumping from a large tower into a huge bowl of Jello
Before they start, a second person is brought into the room and told to watch. When the first demonstration has been completed, the first person is allowed to retake their place and the third person is brought into the room. The second (who has just seen the demonstration) is told that they have to act out what they have just seen for the third person. After it's done, the fourth person enters and the scene is acted out again by the thired person. The games ends when the third person has done the mime, and the fourth person is asked what they have just seen. They get three guesses. Let the humor begin!
A game where killing is done with the wink of an eye.
Cut a small piece of paper for each player. Mark one of the sheets of paper with an "X," fold, shuffle, and distribute one to each player. Each secretly looks at his paper. The one who has the "X" is the assassin. Players sit in a circle and careful examine the faces of the other players. When the assassin winks at a player, the player must say, "I've been hit" and drops out of the game. If a player thinks they have caught the assassin in the act of winking, he/she says "I suspect". They are the first suspecter. All playing then pauses and another player must say "I second suspect" in support of the first person who suspects. The second suspecter may not know who the assassin is, but must trust the judgement of the person who first suspects. The first suspecter then names who they think is the assassin. If they are correct, that player wins. If not, then both the first and second suspecter are dead and drop out and play continues. If the assassin is successful in eliminating all but the last player, the assassin wins.
Balloon Choo Choo
A relay race with balloons between people
Divide into two teams of at least five or more players. Choose a starting line and finish line at least 20 feet apart or more. Each person on each team is given a balloon (9 inch diameter or more). All players inflate their balloon and place it against the back of the team member standing in front of them. They press their bellys against the balloon to hold it against the back side of the next team member. Now you have a line of team members all holding their balloons firmly against the backs of the person in front of them. The front person will not be able to press their body against anyone since they are first. After both teams are in place at the starting line, instruct them that collectively, they are to move from the start line to the finish line. Once their team arrives at the designated location, the first person needs to pop their balloon. When the person behind the first person hears the balloon pop, they are to squeeze their body against the first
person and pop their balloon. It's okay to use their hands as they squeeze this balloon. The first team to arrive at the finish line and pop all balloons is the winner.
Break the Eggs
You need two eggs for every player All are hard boiled except for one . A plastic table cloth or sheet along with paper towels or wipes would also be a good idea.
Place a bowl of eggs on the table. All of them are hardboiled except for one. Each player takes a turn taking an egg and breaking them in one smashing motion on their foreheads. They must take whichever egg they first touch. Hope that you don't get the one that is raw!
The Neck Game
Pass an orange under your chin around the circle. A great game for teenagers
Stand all of the players in a circle. Boy girl boy girl if you wish. The players must pass an orange around a circle without using their hands. In fact, the orange must be passed around under your chin. If the person passing it drops it, then they're out. If the person receiving drops it they're out. Eventually there should be only two people left. If neither of them drop the orange after a while then before passing the orange they have to spin in a circle with their eyes closed. Keep in mind you can use different sized oranges. Larger ones are easier to drop and hard to pass. Smaller ones are harder to grab onto when they are under someone's chin. Once you get a hold of the orange they are a little easier to hold on to. But hard to pass.
Water Balloon Toss
Pair off players into groups of two and have them face their partner about 3 feet apart. Begin tossing balloons to each other. Every time the balloon is caught the player that caught the balloon takes a step back. Eventually someone is going to get wet! You win by being the furthest apart while still successfully catching the water balloon.
Whistling Lap Bluff
While blindfolded, identify the person in whose lap you are sitting only through whistling (or if they can’t whistle, they have to grunt)
A volunteer is blindfolded and stands in the center of a seated circle while the players change seats. The volunteer now sits on any player's lap. No words are spoken. Then the person on whose lap they sit must whistle a tune. He/she must guess whose lap he is sitting on. If he's correct, the two change places. If not then they must move to another lap and try again.
Using only arms and legs, teams complete to make a monster. Fun game for parties!
Divide group into two or three teams of around 6 to 8 players. Announce that each team is to create an ugly monster with a varying number of legs and arms which are to touch the floor. The host first calls out the number of legs and arms, for example, if teams have 8 players the host might start with 12 legs and 6 arms. Give about a minute for each team to form the monster. Use a clock or stopwatch. Let each team finish if they can. Then go to the next round. Progressively reduce the number of legs and increase the number of arms. So the next monster to form might have 8 legs and 8 arms. Then 6 legs and 10 arms. Then 4 legs and 12 arms! Have fun and be creative!
A fun tag game where you get tagged with flour filled nylon sacks
You need Dark shirts (buy some cheap t-shirts) and Flour filled Nylon stockings
Choose a person to be the referee. Determine a jail area. Each player must have a dark T-shirt on (black or navy blue work well). Give each player a nylon that is filled with flour. Tie the nylon at the end to make it into a ball shape. The group plays tag as normal but players are knocked out by throwing the flour torpedoes at each other. You will be able to see who has been hit because they will be hit with a flour mark. The referee must keep their eye on the players and call out those who are hit to the jail area. Keep a damp rag handy to clean up the shirts between rounds.
A variation is to make two teams. Set up a flag at each end of the playing field. Have the teams have to get the flag from their opponents side with out being tagged.
Race to open a gift wrapped in several layers while wearing oven mitts, a hat and scarf.
You will need a wrapped gift, oven mitts, hat, scarf and dice.
Wrap up a small gift (possibly a CD, tape or candy). Then wrap this box in a succession of larger boxes. Use DUCT tape for the wrapping. Don't tell anyone about the layers of boxes. Get a pair of dice and a 9" x 13" baking pan to roll them in. Get a coat, a pair of oven mitts, a scarf and a hat. Get everyone in a circle and put the box in the middle. Choose a number to roll for a person to get a chance at opening the box (it is best to start with a rare number (like four) and move to a common number like seven) Begin rolling the dice. Each person gets one roll then passes the dice. When someone rolls the number of choice (again it is best to start with a less probable number "4" and later change the rules to more common number "7")
They have to: Put on all the clothes (coat, hat, scarf, mitts) and try to open the box. They only get to try until a new person rolls the same number.
This game is more fun than you can imagine
