Fun Event & Activity Ideas

Bring Your Own Utensil Dinner

That's what you advertise it as . . . “Bring Your Own Utensil,” and you don't tell them anything else. When you're pumping the event, give suggestions of utensils they can bring: wooden spoons, spatulas, serving forks, egg beaters . . . whatever you want.

Serve a spaghetti dinner for the event. The catch is… no silverware. Everyone has to use the utensil they brought with them. Take pictures with a digital camera (if you have the capability, show a slide presentation at the end of the night). Give prizes afterward for the following:


  • Most Creative Utensil

  • Most Functional Utensil

  • Sloppiest Eater

  • Neatest Eater

  • Largest Portion Consumed

  • Smallest Portion Consumed

This event works great for building up the fellowship of your group. Don't forget to capitalize on this event. Use one of our mixers, like Jelly Bean Trade, from our Mixers Page to make the event even cooler.

Enjoy!
