Activity | Five-minute fillers week 5


Zip Zap

No matter how prepared you are, when activities finish earlier than anticipated it can leave you wondering what to do with those spare five minutes. If you’re stuck for ideas, test your Group's memory with a speedy game of Zip Zap.

Zip Zap

The rules:

1. Form a circle with the leader in the centre.
2. When the leader points to someone and says 'zip' the player must give the name of the person on their right before the leader counts to five.
3. If the leader says 'zap' the player must name the person on the left before the leader counts to five.
4. Anyone who gives the wrong name or is too slow to answer, either has to sit out of the circle or perform a fun forfeit. For example, 10 seconds of riverdance, an impression of a famous singer, or crawl around like a dog for 10 seconds.

Want to make the game harder? Decrease the counting time to three seconds!
