Easy game for a big group (at least 20, if not more). Quickly divide into 2 teams and announce that each team will be racing to squeeze into the shape of the item mentioned.

Difficultly: A (not much)

Timed Event: Yes

Cut up slips of paper with words on them and put them into a bag. Break up into two teams. Get a volunteer from each team to spell the word he/she took out of the bag by moving their hips (spelling the words with thier butts!). (Make sure they do not say a word to give away clues.) If their team does not figure out the word after two spellings, the other team gets to guess.

Make it interesting by the words you choose, try to keep it clean. We don't want any dirty butts!

Clothespin Relay

This is set up like any relay with multiple teams, each team with 5 clothespins. Have the first person in line attach the clothespins to their shirt, clothes, or body part, run around a certain designated point and return to have the clothespins removed by a designated pin person with thier teeth and then they are pinned to the next person in line and that person runs the course and back. This is doen until the last person makes it back and all the pins are removed.

Cotton Bombs

 

Place: Youth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: Q-tips and straws
Age Group: Age 5 on up
Difficultly: A (not much)
Scoring: First to knock cup off
Timed Event: No

Divide into two teams and give each member a straw (wide straws work best - McDonald's has them, but it would be wise to ask instead of just grabbing that amount) and a pile of Q-tips. One team member from each side sits on their side of the room on a chair with a paper cup on their head. The object is to knock the opposite team's paper cup off the person's head by blowing the Q-tips through the straws. No blocking Q-tips by anyone during the battle.

Encore

 

Place: Youth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: None

Timed Event: No

This is a simple game that tests contestants ability to think fast. Divide into teams (usually divide into girls and guys for good competition). Yell out a word that is commonly found in songs (love, road, river, girl, baby, need . . . ). The teams must sing a song in unison (together) using that word. The first team to do it wins a point. Play as long as they like it.

Nylon Golfballs

 

Place: Youth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: Golfballs & Pantyhose
Age Group: Age 15 on up
Difficultly: A (not much)
Scoring: First team to finishline
Timed Event: No

This game can be a relay, but I, personally, think relays just take too much stinkin' time and leave kids just standing there bored . . . so I usually do this as an up-front game for everyone to watch a couple people do.

Tape two lines on the floor about fifteen feet apart. Have ready two pair of pantyhose and four golf balls. Put one golf ball in the leg of the pantyhose and one golf ball on the ground. After wrapping the other leg of the pantyhose around your waist, the leg with the golf ball should be hanging down in front of you just barely touching the ground. With movement from your body alone, you are to hit the golf ball on the ground with the one hanging from your waist. The object is to move the golf ball from one line to the next. Pass the pantyhose to the next person and they must go back. This is repeated until 5-10 people on each team have completed the task.

Mummy Wrap

 

Place: Youth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: case of toilet paper
Age Group: 10 on up
Difficultly: A (none)
Scoring: Judged by audience
Timed Event: Could be

Pick three groups of three people each. Give each a roll or two of toilet paper. Make sure you give each team the same amount. Two people wrap up (like a mummy) the third person in the group. The object of the game is to: See who can wrap up their "mummy" first or who is most creative in their "mummifying". You may wish to add a few other objects into the game (Q-tips, t.p. rolls, etc.) to aid in the "artistic expression possibilities". You could have the crowd vote or the staff. You need 3 or 6 rolls of toilet paper.

Play Doh Pictionary

 

Place: Youth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: Play-doh
Age Group: 15 on up
Difficultly: A (not much)
Scoring: correct guesses
Timed Event: No

Just like it sounds! Pictionary, but with Play-doh. Divide into teams. Have a representative come up front from each group. Whisper a Pictionary word (like "dog") to the group and they must run back to their group and, without talking, mold that word with Play-doh. Put a staff member on each team cause kids will cheat (so do some staff members!)

Q-Tip Shuffle

 

PlaceYouth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: Q-Tips
Age Group: 5 on up
Difficultly: A
Scoring: First team done
Timed Event: No

Another stupid relay . . . but some of you might actually like those pathetic things! Several teams divide in half and stand in two lines on the opposite sides of the room for this relay game. A person in front of the line shoves six Q-tips in different orifices of his/her body (sticking out of pockets, between knees, protruding from armpits . . . ), then shuffles across room to the person in front of the other line who grabs Q-tips with their teeth, and drops them on the floor. That person then sticks the Q-tips on their body somewhere and does the same, running (shuffling) back to the original line. First team to finish the relay wins.

TP OverUnder

 

PlaceYouth event Corporate Picnic
Items Needed: Toilet Paper
Age Group: 5 on up
Difficultly: A
Scoring: First team done
Timed Event: No

This pathetic game actually works sometimes, although don't count your chickens. Line up your teams (however many you want). The object is to pass toilet paper, unraveling it as you go over their head then the next person under their legs and so on until the back of the line. If toilet paper breaks, the person must tie it together before continuing to unravel. First one to the back (or back up, or the back person runs it to the front of the line, etc.) wins.
