Monkey in the Middle

An icebreaker, drama, circle game for junior youth

Also known as: Funny Faces, Make Them Laugh


How To Play Monkey in the Middle

For this icebreaker game, you'll need to form a circle with chairs. You have one person in the middle. You can call that person the monkey in the middle.

The monkey in the middle can be blindfolded or close their eyes. While having their eyes closed, they spin around 3 times with their finger pointed out. They stop, open their eyes. The person they are pointing at is their challenge.

They have to do something while staying in the circle to get them to laugh. Either by making a funny face or doing some kind of goofy dance. If the person sitting down laughs, they get up and it's their turn. If they don't laugh the person in the middle has to close their eyes and start over again with a new person. The time limit to get someone to laugh is 2 minutes tops.

1. say your name ten times.
2. say your mom's name five times.
3. say your crushes three times
4. paste this to four other groups.
If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday.
But if you read this and do not paste this, then you
will have very bad luck.
SEND THIS TO 5 GROUPS IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN
YOU'RE DONE PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSH'S NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS
