Got a pack of cards that's missing one or two? Don't throw them away, use them to play "Match 3 Ways". This memory/matching game is super for when you have a bit of time to fill. Players vie to match cards one of three ways - by color, by number, or by suit. Get 2 of the matching elements and earn a "double down" - double the points. Match all 3, with the help of a Joker, and you earn an extra turn.
Here's a completely silly game to get the members of your next party moving. Great for a youth retreat, where kids know each other well, or a mixer where you want to shake things up. The group sits in chairs in a large circle. The leader yells out instructions that cause the players to move from chair to chair -- the catch? If someone is sitting on your chair, you must share the chair. It's a mad scramble that's guaranteed to cause lots of laughs.
Convincing kids that veggies are as good as candy can be a daunting task, but this game makes eating veggies a challenge and believe it or not, fun! Play with one or two kids during a meal, or play with a big group as a relay race. It's a game that will make Peter Rabbit hop up and down with delight! (Of course, if playing at a birthday party you may want to substitute sweets for the veggies! No one wants a riot on their hands at a party!)
Looking for something to do with those leftover Easter peeps? Peep Skeet! It's up to you what you choose to knock the peeps from the sky, but whatever you choose will definitely provide an awesome challenge. One player tosses Peeps into the air, while the other tries to hit the Peep before it lands on the ground. It's better than going on an English shooting party with the crew from Downton Abby!
Have you got what it takes to "face the flour"? A Lifesaver is placed on top of a hard-packed mound of flour. Players take turns cutting the flour away, bit by bit, with a plastic knife. It takes precision to keep that Lifesaver aloft, but when it falls, you'd better get the camera, because whomever has knocked the Lifesaver down must retrieve it without the use of their hands! A fabulously messy game that's great for your next family gathering!
Have a little fun playing with your food! Players vie to see which team can be the fastest at creating the perfect Bento Boxes filled with candy treats. Serve this game up with a side of our candy sushi and you'll be an expert with the chopsticks in no time.
Make your next game of tag an epic one! Add the mythical element of playing with a character like Medusa, and change boring old freeze tag into an adventure. Heroes must avoid direct contact with Medusa or risk the fate of being turned to stone. Who will be the one to defeat Medusa and return the statues to their normal state?
Rainy days got you down? Venture out into the rain for a bit of fun! Brave the elements and challenge yourself! See how many raindrops you can catch in a cup! It actually takes a bit of practice and skill to catch a raindrop, and you'll find that you spend a good deal of time running and racing to catch them. It's a great way to burn off a little pent-up energy on a not-so-nice day.
Whether you're looking for an ice breaker for a large group, or a new way to team up old companions, this is the perfect game. Players are each give one half of a heart and must find their missing half. Once players are paired up you can have them work as a team in future games, or just get to know each other. Any way you look at it, it's a great way to get the heart rate up!
Put your friends' powers of observation to the test! Challenge them to a game of Sculptures and see just how many rounds it takes for them to figure out the trick. All you need is a random bunch of objects and a table. It's a great game to play in a restaurant while waiting for your food, but don't be surprised if the waitress wants to play as well.
