Fun in the Sun Games – Look Down, Look Up

In this weekly series we highlight fun, simple games which can be played at your local park, around your campsite firepit, with new friends or family. The games vary from icebreakers, name games, and exercise warm-ups, to puzzles or riddles. Check out our weekly post and get out there and have some fun!

Participants: 5 or more

Equipment: None

Timeframe: 2 to 5 minutes

Objective: To transition energy, gain focus, and share a laugh

Players form a circle standing shoulder to shoulder. The facilitator says, “Look down.” Players look at their feet. The facilitator then says, “Look Up.” Players look into the eyes of another player. If two players make eye contact with each other, they both scream (in shock) and step out of the circle. If eye contact isn’t made, both players stay in for the next round. The game continues until only one or two players remain.
