Games and Activities
(for Ages 16-18)

Use a Frisbee to knock down 2 liter plastic soda bottles set up like bowling pins. Score the game same as bowling. You might need a bit of water to weigh the bottles down.

Go to a local place where they make trophies and get a plaque that says "World's Best Girlfriend" (or Boyfriend or Friend or Golfer, etc.)

Ask each guest to bring an old hat, and bring extras just in case. Sit everyone in a circle, wearing their hats. As the music starts, each person removes his hat from his head and places it on the lap of his neighbor, who moves the hat to the lap of the next person, who picks it up and places it on his own head. The hats keep going around and around until the music stops. Whoever ends up without a hat when the music stops is out of the game. One hat is removed and the game continues.

Everyone (more than 5 people) stands in a circle. Take the hand of somebody who is not next to you. Then take another hand of somebody different who is not next to you. Untangle the knot without releasing hands, until everyone is standing side by side. You may end up with more than one circle, depending on how many participants.

Play a quiz game like Trivial Pursuit or Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

See how small a circle your group can squish into. Keep making the circle smaller and think of ways to get in a smaller area, such as making pyramids, sitting on laps, etc. Or use a small square of plywood and see how many can fit on a one foot square.

Play the skittle game: Buy a bag of skittles. Everyone sits in a circle and take turns rolling the dice. Whatever number the dice lands on is how many skittles that person has to put into his/her mouth. No chewing of swallowing. The dice goes around the circle and skittles keep going into the mouths until someone has to chew, swallow or spit out the skittles.

Have someone leave the room. The group selects a verb. Have the person try to guess the verb by asking questions about that verb, replacing the verb in the question with the word "pickle". He might ask "Is it fun to pickle?" "Yes." "Can I pickle right here?" "No." Individuals can only answer "Yes" or "No". Establish a time limit or limit the number of questions.

Pack a cup full of flower so tight that when you flip it over it will come out in the shape of the cup. Place a dime carefully on the top of the mound. With knives, each person slices away a portion of the flower mound, and the first person who makes the dime fall, goes "fishing" for it with their hands. This is very messy and quite entertaining.

Divide up into two teams. Give every team player a toothpick to put in his/her mouth. A marshmallow is passed from teammate to teammate using only the toothpicks. Dropped marshmallows can be moved back one person or to the start of the line.

Find a small object that will be easy to hide. Everybody playing should have a turn to hide the object somewhere in the room where everybody is sitting down. While the object is being hidden, someone has to leave the room until they hear the words "OOOLAH BOOOLAH" being sung (choose a tune that everyone likes). The singing means that it is time for the person to come in the room and start looking for the object. The closer the person is to the object, the louder everyone should sing. Thus, the further away the person from the object, the quieter everyone should sing. As soon as the person finds the object and everybody is singing OOOLAH BOOOLAH as loud as they can, it's somebody else's turn.

The guys (or girls) lie on the floor face up each with a cone in their mouths. Their partner must hold a scoop of ice cream at shoulder level. The person on the floor tries to direct the scoop into the position where he/she thinks the ice cream will drop into the cone. Then have all the scoops dropped at once. Then trade places and repeat.

Put large paper bags on the heads of four or more guests. Give each person a marker which he/she will use to draw his/her own face as directed by an announcer. "Draw you right eye, then drop your hands to your side. Draw your left ear, then drop your hands to your side" and so forth until everyone is finished.

Go to your local shopping mall and make penny wishes in the fountains. Dream big! Share your wishes out loud and you will find out a lot about your date (and vice versa)! If your mall doesn't have fountains, find a fountain in the city or park or golf course.

Sit the group in a circle and hand each person a piece of paper (which they do not show anyone else). This paper contains a certain act they have to perform when someone else in the groups says or does something (sometimes leading to a chain reaction). This can be very confusing when someone suddenly yells, "My name's Steve, and I like to eat people's hair." There can be all sorts of different actions that go right in a row based on what the first person did. You could have someone pat his head and because that person did that, someone else would get up and walk around and sit down again. When someone laughs, someone looks at his/her watch, then another person would have this action: "When someone looks at his/her watch, point at them and give them a thumbs up sign."
