Back to poppet's original question...


We've got a small gathering of or 5 famillies coming to ours at new years eve, there will be children of various ages upto 13 and their parents, all of whom we know very well. The forfeits need to be ones that the children can do too but not too childish that the adults wont join in.

so far ive got

Put lipstick on the person to your right (blindfolded)
Give the person to your left a donkey ride
Wear a wig for the rest of the game
Sing we wish you a merry christmas, whilst wearing comedy teeth
Kiss a pillow like its your most fanciable person :rotfl:
Act like a monkey for 20 seconds

any other ideas would be most welcome.

    How about go out of the room with two legs and come back with six!! (Let them work it out!! Grab a cat or chair!!)

    Pick a partner - blindfold both - then feed each other jelly or summat else.

    Follow your nose!! Get two people to hold up a blanket - another bod uses a torch for the victim to follow literally with their nose up against blanket from one end of blanket to the other only for a wet sponge to greet them at the end!!

    Drink a cold cup of summat that just does not taste as nice when cold instead of hot, e.g. cold tea, cold tomato soup.

    Make a paper aeroplane one handed. not as easy as you think!!

    If I think of anymore - I'll jot them down later.


    Eat three crackers, without a drink - then whistle a tune that the others have to guess.
    Limbo under a bar
    Do the twist - to music
    Belly dance
    Name seven dwarfs
    Name five parts of the body spelt with only 3 letters.
    Shake hands with everyone
    Swap socks with person on your left
    Remove item of red clothing - double or treble this if they are not wearing red and have to remove clothing from someone else.
    Expect the worst, hope for the best, and take what comes!!:o

    You could also try these-

    Make an animal out of a square of tin foil

    Put your clothes back on so that they are inside out and back to front

    Draw a face on your belly

    Serenade a neighbour- next door - literally, or someone in the corner shop

    Using a variety of hair bands, clips etc., 'do' someone's hair - blindfolded

    Send an adult up the road on a space hopper or skateboard

    Make a 'cake' out of compressed flour, put a small sweet on top, then the person has to get the sweet, only using their mouth only

    Impersonate all the cycles of a washing machine
