  3. Scoop It - Players must transport as many ping pong balls as they can from one bowl to another. The twist? They have to use a plastic spoon — in their mouth — to do it!
  4. Balloon Bounce - Each player has one hand but two balloons to keep in the air for a minute. See who can hold their balloons up the longest.
  5. Sticky Situation - Throw ping pong balls and try to get them to stick to a piece of bread covered in peanut butter on the other side of the room. This game might let you know who to start on your office softball team.

  1. Pretty Windy - Line up two lines of Solo cups on the edges of two tables. Then, have your coworkers go head to head, blowing up a balloon and using the air inside it to knock over more cups than their challengers.
  2. Ringing Bells - Fill shoeboxes with one, two, three, four or five bells. Then, have your coworkers shake each box and see if they put the boxes in the correct order from least to the highest number of bells.
  3. Candy Straw - Each player has one empty plate and one full of candy. Using just their mouth, a straw and no hands, they have to transport all of the candy to the other plate before time runs out.
