Games don’t have to be expensive or hard to create! Here are 2 simple DIY party games to get you game time ready!
Are you hosting a party? Get the party started with these two simple DIY games! You’ll get to know each other a little better and have fun without breaking the bank!
1. Skittles Ice Breaker Game:
The first one is an “icebreaker” game that gets folks talking at a party. Inviting others to your home is always fun, but when you’re not really a game player, it can be hard. This icebreaker game is easy to make, easy to set up, and easy to play. There are 100 questions that ask silly things such as “How far away from where you were born do you live?” And “Have you gone out with mismatched shoes or socks on?” Easy questions to answer, that allow you to get to know one another better while not being an overly complicated game. Win-Win!
To play this game, print the cute question sheets onto cardstock. (scroll down to access this free printable!)
This will make them more durable. You could also laminate these sheets before cutting them out if you plan to play this game more than once or with several players.
Once they are cut out, set them aside while you prepare the bags. I turned down the tops of lunch sacks, added some colored washi tape, and wrote the colors on the bag.
Each question has a colored Skittles® on it, there are 2 pages of 10 questions each for each of the 5 Skittles colors. Separate the questions into their appropriate bag color. Set aside.
When you’re ready to play, grab the small bags of Skittles and hand one to each of the players.
As they pull a Skittle out of the package, they are to pull a question from the same color bag to answer before they enjoy that tasty rainbow of flavor. They get to eat a snack while playing this game!
2. Skittles Chopsticks Game
I like to make these game sets up ahead of time before the party guests arrive. For these small containers, I added 3 pretzel twists, 5 mini marshmallows, and 10 Skittles.
We have a Chinese restaurant in town and stopped in to ask if we could purchase a few sets of chopsticks. They were quite generous and gave us several sets. We are now prepared for this game whenever we want to play a round or two!
Each player has a Skittles mix, 3 empty containers, and chopsticks.
Using only the chopsticks, separate each item into their own container.
The object is to use only the chopsticks to separate the items into individual containers. No hands! No holding the container while using the chopsticks. Use only chopsticks to move the items. It’s not as easy as it looks!
The items needed for both of these games are probably in your home right now!
