This is a fun game that can help lift spirits during a long winter…and it’s simple.

The group sits in a circle on the floor, and someone is chosen to begin the game. This first person then turns to the person on the left or right and says that person’s name in a funny voice (and may use hand gestures or facial expressions). If that person laughs, he or she must sit outside the circle. The object of this game, of course, is not to laugh when someone speaks your name. Play continues until one person remains—the person without any sense of humor! You’ll likely want to play this one multiple times, and the laughter is often contagious.
