Games & Icebreakers, Up-Front Games

Cup Closer


This is done with partners. Have a few volunteers come up front or do this with everyone in the room. The girls lay on the floor with a coke cup on their forehead. The guys kneel beside the girls and put their forehead on the other end of the cup. From this position, the couple must try to stand — then turn the cup over, with the boy now laying on the ground, without touching it w/their hands. Bonus points if they waltz with the cup between their heads. (Supply waltzing music.)

Our variation: Use a volleyball or goofy looking stuffed toy instead of a cup.
