Easy game for a big group (minimum 20). Quickly divide into 2-4 teams (more people, more teams) and announce that each team will be racing to squeeze into the shape of the item mentioned. For example: if the leaders yell out the word “football” the teams must squeeze into the shape of a football as would be seen from above. Keep score- first team to 10 wins.
