As titos and titas, it’s our job to share our Christmas bonus to family members this holiday season. Well, let’s make that sharing a little more exciting by conducting games! Winner gets the prize, and everyone gets to have a little fun.
But, what games should you play? Lucky for you, we made a quiz to help you decide what games from Minute-to-Win-It and from childhood you can play!
Even without props, I’m sure you have music! So get the party started with this classic game.
Revamp this game with creative prompts like wiggle your ears or kiss your elbow.
A classic game demonstrating the importance of being a girl or boy scout.
BONUS TIP! A variation of this is LETTER HUNT where you tell everyone to bring you a thing that starts with the letter…
Yes! Pinoy Henyo has gone digital! Download apps to get random and unbiased content. This way, everyone gets to join in on the fun.
STEP COUNTER APPS
Get everyone to download the same step counter app or pedometer. Then, for 30 seconds, have everyone run in place. The highest number on the app wins!
Allow everyone to use their smartphone for this one. You’ll host a game (sequencing, multiple choice, etc.) and get everyone to answer it at the party. Register at kahoot.com to create or host a game.
BONUS TIP! Show everyone’s ranking if you have a projector screen or a Google Caster! It will help spark a healthy competition among everyone!
Need: colored candies, container
The objective of the game is to separate and put together same-colored candies in one container.
FACE THE COOKIE
Need: cookie, chair
Get your cameras ready as the objective of this game is to transport a cookie from one’s forehead to his mouth! And that sure requires some face contorting worth posting on Facebook.
Need: softdrink, straw
Fastest one to a bottom’s up will be declared the winner! The only catch is each player has to drink with two straws, with only one straw inside the softdrink bottle.
Let’s revive this internet challenge and campfire game classic. The person with the most number of marshmallow in his mouth and can still say “Chubby Bunny” clearly wins this.
BONUS TIP! If “Chubby Bunny” is too easy, try changing the magic phrase to a tongue twister.
RUBBER BAND RELAY
Need: rubber band, straw
A team must successfully transfer as many rubber bands as they can using only a straw to transfer the bands. The straws must be in each player’s mouth.
Need: cup, straw
Similar to Rubber Band Relay, a team must successfully transfer something using the straws in each player’s mouth. This time, players must transfer a cup.
Need: egg, spoon
Transfer an egg balancing on top of a spoon from one player to another. The team must successfully transfer this egg—unbroken!—to the last person in the line.
Need: cups, rubber bands or balls
Stack cups in a pyramid a few feet away from the players. Using rubber bands or balls, players must successfully take down the pyramid.
Need: cups, bottle
You start by flipping a cup from a table and sending it flying to your partner. The cup should land like a lid on the bottle your partner is holding. Your partner, by the way, is a few feet away.
Need: cups, balls
Let’s modify this classic drinking party game. Set up the classic pyramid of cups and try to fill in all the cups as quickly as possible. First to complete it wins!
BONUS TIP! You can play this as duos. Get the set-up ready on both players’ sides. First team to fill their cups wins!
PAPER PLANE GAME
Need: paper, basket
Shoot the plane inside the basket. Simple to explain. Probably difficult to do.
Need: playing cards, basket
This has the same objective as the Paper Plane Game—except you have to shoot cards. Remember the days you used to play teks. That flicking technique will come in handy.
Need: paper ball or stress ball, basket, cardboard or notebook
Players must rally the ball back and forth using a cardboard or notebook. The objective of this game is to shoot as many balls into the basket in a minute.
Hope you get a good laugh and enjoy your bonding with family and friends this holiday season with these games we picked for you!
