‘Communi-Tea’ Party Games

We want to make sure that everyone can get involved at your ‘Communi-Tea’ Party, so we’ve put together some fun games for people to play! Have a look at the suggestions below for ideas of how to come together and have fun at your Communi-Tea Party. 

Tea Tray Memory Tea-se

You will need:

  • A tea tray
  • A tea towel
  • Between ten to twenty small objects (you could use some objects from your Get Involved pack).

People can play as individuals or teams. They can write down their answers or speak them out loud if you have somewhere people can play without being overheard.

How to play:

  1. Place the items on the tray
  2. Give participants time to look at the objects on the tray and try to memorise. (People can ask what things are called if they are not sure.)
  3. Cover up the tray and give people 2 minutes to name as many of the things on the tray as they can remember.
    You might want to award a small prize to the
    winner(s).

Tea Leaf Pictionary

You will need:

  • Tea Leaves

How to play:

  1. Players make pictures using tea leaves and others have to guess what they are.
  2. You can award points for correct guesses and play first to a set number of points, or just play for fun!

The Cup Game

You will need:

  • Three paper cups
  • A small object such as a ball, shell or a Learning Disability Week badge (included in your Get Involved pack).

How to play: 

  1. Put the cups upside down on a table
  2. Put the small object under one of the cups
  3. Move the cups around
  4. Players guess which cup the object is under

You can award points for correct guesses and play first to a set number of points or just play for fun.

Teabag Tussle

You will need:

  • Five tea bags
  • A large cup or mug

How to play:

  1. Participants take turns to throw the teabags into the cup or mug from a distance. You get one point for every teabag which is successfully thrown in to the cup or mug
  2. The winner is the person with the most points
  3. If you have people sharing the top spot you can play more rounds where they compete against each other. Move the cup further away each time until you have just one winner.
