Can you perform all the action on the list before someone else? It’s wacky and silly fun for everyone. Have a digital camera ready for some really crazy snapshots!

Description
Participants compete to be the first to perform all the actions on the list

Resources
Worksheet and pen or pencil for each participant

Preparation
Preprint the worksheet. Items can be arranged in a normal bingo grid or simply as a list for simplicity.

Some possible items are:

  • Tell a Joke
  • Pretend you are taking a bath or shower in the middle of the room!
  • Select someone else to sing a song with you.
  • Recite a nursery rhyme.
  • Imitate a comic strip character until someone guesses its identity.
  • Behave like a duck for 10 seconds
  • Say something nice about three different people in the room.
  • Shake hands with three other people in the room.
  • Pantomime a two year old child taking a bone away from a German shepherd dog.
  • Walk from one end of the room to the other with an object between you knees.
  • Act like an egg being cracked and fried.
  • Do an impression of a well known celebrity. Identify the person first.
  • Confer with another person and make a short poem about one of the leaders
  • Select a few people to aid you in selecting a scene from a popular Bible story and act it out.
  • Draw a picture of yourself and give it to someone in the room.
  • Find something in your pocket or purse to give to the person on your left.
  • Retell the story of Goldilocks and the three bears using the name of four other people in the room as the bears and Goldilocks.

ADD Your Own Crazy Actions!

 

What to Do

  1. Each person must perform all the actions from a list of actions in front of someone and then those who participated or observed that action must sign beside the item.
  2. Whoever gets all the items signed first, wins!

 

Taking it to the Next Level

Embarrassed? 

  • What is the craziest thing you have ever done? The most embarrassing?
  • Have you ever done something silly that you later regretted?
  • If you could go back and change one thing you did in the past, what would you change? Why?
  • What is one thing you did that was seen by others as a little silly, but that you wished you could do again?
  • Has the possibility of being embarrassed ever stopped you from doing something that you should have done or wish you would have done?

 

One of our greatest fears is the fear of being embarrassed. We don’t want to lose the respect of others or to be the subject of ridicule. But anything worthwhile in life carries with it some risk. You usually have to go out on a limb to get the fruit. Everything worthwhile in life lies outside of your comfort zone. Some of the greatest achievements in history took place because men and women were not afraid to risk embarrassment and ridicule to reach for their dreams! It’s a good thing the Wright brothers, Thomas Edison, Louis Pasteur, Christopher Columbus and others weren’t afraid of ridicule. Otherwise we wouldn’t have planes, light bulbs, vaccines, and many of the other technological marvels we enjoy today!

  • ..so many centuries after the Creation it is unlikely that anyone could find hitherto unknown lands of any value. – Committee advising Ferdinand and Isabella regarding Columbus’ proposal, 1486
  • Drill for oil? You mean drill into the ground to try and find oil? You’re crazy. – Drillers who Edwin L. Drake tried to enlist to his project to drill for oil in 1859.
  • Louis Pasteur’s theory of germs is ridiculous fiction. – Pierre Pachet, Professor of Physiology at Toulouse, 1872
  • Such startling announcements as these should be deprecated as being unworthy of science and mischievous to to its true progress. – Sir William Siemens, 1880, on Edison’s announcement of a successful light bulb.
  • Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible. – Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895.
  • The energy produced by the atom is a very poor kind of thing. Anyone who expects a source of power from the transformation of these atoms is talking moonshine. – Ernst Rutherford, 1933

Application
Don’t be afraid to reach for your dreams! Write down at least one of your dreams and put them up someplace where you will see them everyday!
