4 activities you can do as a group

The most memorable moments in our lives tend to be those we share with our friends and family.

And what’s better than organising a big group activity where you can all have fun and do something new?

From fancy cook-offs to searching for treasure, we take a look at some great examples of group activities that you can get involved in.

Game of bingo

While you and your group can head out to a bingo hall, you can just as easily organise a game together at home. All you need is a random number generator or bingo cage, some scorecards, and some dabbers.

You could also have your guests play online bingo instead if you don’t have all of the equipment ready. Just make sure that everyone is aware of the rules and what they need to do when they’ve won. There are different variations of bingo too that you may decide to play, including 75-ball or 90-ball.

Scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts have been a popular game for groups for almost a hundred years now, which means there are some highly creative ideas to choose from. The rules are simple, teams will be given a list of miscellaneous items that they need to collect in order to win.

To make things slightly easier, you can provide some riddles or clues to the location of the items. While you can play pretty much anywhere, a nearby park or garden is usually the most ideal. From there, plan the route, hide the clues, and set some ground rules. For the team that wins, provide a prize – this could be a small trophy or some sweet treats.

Cooking competition

If your group considers themselves amateur chefs, why not host a cooking competition?  Take turns hosting at each other’s houses and prepare a three-course that is sure to impress. Be sure to cater to any dietary requirement or allergies.

At the end of each evening, each guest should provide a score out of 10 – whether you choose to do this in secret so it’s a surprise is completely up to you. The person who scores the highest can be crowned head chef.

Team quiz

Quiz nights are perfect for groups since you can split everyone into as many teams as you want. You can even do this online if gathering everyone in the same place is a challenge. Try to tailor the quiz to suit the interests of your team. For example, you could include questions about each person or dedicate a whole section to all your favourite sports.

Make sure that each team marks the scorecards fairly and arrange a prize for the winning team.
