AUTHOR: BEC OF 'FOR EVERY HEN'
Are you searching for funny hen party games? You've definitely found one of the best! 'I Can Do That, Too!' is not only hilarious and fun, but also very unique. It's a fantastic way to show off the hidden talents of the group, get the gals laughing and more. To view our easy-to-follow instructions, see below.
HOW TO PLAY THIS FUNNY HEN PARTY GAME!
YOU WILL NEED:
A couple of 'experts' (or expert videos!), a timer, and supplies to complete the tasks (see instructions below for more information).
First you need to find yourself some experts. It's best if they're attending the party (more fun seeing it unfold in person!), but if you cannot get someone to put their hand up, expert videos on YouTube make a great backup.
To find an 'expert', send out a message to your guest list asking them to get in touch with you privately if they have any fun, hidden talents that can be performed in less than one minute (e.g. smokey eye makeup, folding a fitted sheet, making a delicious cocktail, sculpting the bride-to-be out of playdough, etc.). Click here to download a list of talent ideas that can be shown to your group for inspiration.
Once you have your experts lined up (aim for at least two or three if you can), it's time to get the supplies sorted. Supplies will differ depending on what the talents are (e.g. if your expert is sculpting your bride-to-be out of playdough, you will need to make enough playdough for each team to have a crack + some for the expert's demonstration). If you have three experts, your guests will be split into teams of 3, two experts and your guests will be split into teams of 2, etc. (so you will need to stock up on supplies accordingly).
Before everyone arrives, set up some tables in an area that everyone can gather around. Have your supplies sorted and ready to go. When it comes time to play, take aside your experts and bride-to-be; and then split remaining guests into teams (as mentioned above, this will depend on the number of experts you have. If there are two experts, guests must have two people per team; three experts, guests must have three people per team, etc.).
Now it's time for those hidden talents to shine! Expert number 1 starts the game by demonstrating their talent to the group (make sure you have the timer going, because it must be done within 1 minute!). When the expert has finished their demonstration, it's time for the guests' to have a turn! Each team must pick one member to complete the first task. The 'chosen one' from each team then makes their way to the front of the party (where the tables & supplies are waiting), ready to get their talent on. When the siren goes (or you yell 'START!') they must do their best to mimic what the expert has just shown them (cue much laughter). Once the minute is up, your beautiful bride-to-be gets to award one point (this could be for the funniest attempt, the most accurate attempt, etc. - it's up to her!), and the expert also gets to award one point (to the person whose final result is closest to the original demonstration).
Keep playing rounds, as mentioned in the above paragraph, until all experts have strutted their stuff and all team members have had a turn at mimicking one of the talents. The team with the most points at the end is the winner!
Handy hint: If there's a draw, come up with a fun tie-breaker (such as 'pretend to be our beautiful bride-to-be for 10 seconds!). Your bride can then choose the overall winner!
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY 'I CAN DO THAT, TOO!'
WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
Some guests don't like having the spotlight on them, getting up in front of a crowd, etc. And whilst they won't be alone in front of the group for this game (all 'chosen members' will be up the front with them), they may find it a bit confronting having the rest of the party watching their every move. To fix this problem, have teams compete as a whole team rather than sending one person up per expert. It will be a little more chaotic, but just as hilarious!
Alternatively, if someone is really uncomfortable with the thought of participating in this game, let them sit it out. They could play photographer/videographer or even get involved in the judging! The extra mementos will be well-loved by your bride-to-be.
If you can't find any 'experts' within your guest list, you can still play this game! Before the party, find and save a few videos from YouTube that can be replayed in front of the group; these videos will be your 'experts'. Just be aware that some sort of device will be needed to play the videos on, and the screen must be large enough for the entire party to view at the same time (they can't recreate what they can't see, after all).
