1. Post-It Note Game

A pen and a stack of sticky notes are required. On each note, write the name of a well-known person or character. Then pass the notes around until everyone gets one. Each participant should place their note on their forehead or back without looking.

To learn your given identity, have everyone mingle or sit in a circle and take turns asking yes-or-no questions. Play until everyone has guessed their identity correctly, or provide rewards to those who do ("Am I living?" is a fantastic place to start).

3. Two Truths and a Lie

Choose three facts about yourself, such as "I have two siblings, I've visited three continents, and I love cats." One should be a falsehood and two should be true. Then the next person goes, and everyone else has to guess which is the lie. This is a fantastic icebreaker game; if you play with family or friends, choose ambiguous information to deceive one another for added fun.

4. Bingo

The simplest and fastest method is to purchase a pre-made set, but you can also create your own. Each person has a card with a range of numbers on it. If a number you call out appears, the youngster marks it on their card. The first person to tick off every number in a row wins.

5.  Sticker Stalker

Buy a pack of stickers, then distribute one sheet of five to ten stickers to each person (or less, depending on the size of the party). This game can be simply included in any happy hour or neighborhood event because it functions best at a gathering where everyone is socializing.

The first person to utilize all of their stickers wins. Each player must covertly place all of their stickers on other partygoers. They must take a sticker if they are caught stickering someone. You can chuckle at how cunning some individuals are at the end of the night and marvel at how you managed to get stickers all over your back without even realizing it.

6. Game Night

Bring your favorite vintage board game, such as Dream Phone or Guess Who, and have everyone arrive in their favorite pajamas or activewear. Additionally, provide victors with goodie packages for an added touch of nostalgia.

7. Spa Day

Enjoy a movie marathon while getting DIY facials (or sheet masks), at-home massages, and mani/pedis. Instead of having to worry about setting up anything, if you want to go the additional mile, have the party at a spa.
