Playing games are a great way to get your group active, loosened up, or just break up an afternoon class. Here is a list of small group games that work well with groups of less than 10 people.
A mock race around an imaginary horse race track, good for kids and younger groups. 4+ people.
Use the Chair as a Prop
A fun improv-type game where one group member uses a chair (or other item) as a prop to act out an activity and other members call out their guesses. 4+ people.
Similar to Steeple Chase, this is another imagination game where group members are encouraged to race as a penguin. For kids (or adults who aren’t afraid of looking silly!). 4+ people.
123 Look Up
A simple elimination game. At the signal of the leader, group members all look at another member of the group. If two members are looking at each other, they are eliminated from the round. 6+ people.
An elaborate game of rock, paper, scissors where participants evolve from eggs all the way up to champion. 8+ people.
A good warm up game for young kids, where participants walk, run or stay still depending on what color the leader says the ‘traffic light’ is. 8+ people.
Over Under Race
A team race to pass the ball from the front of the line to the back, alternating passing it over their head and through their legs. 8+ people (need an even number).
