7. Duplicate Image Challenge

Ever flipped through your family album and cringed at the pictures that were taken? Or maybe you have shared a laugh at some of the clothes or the hair? Imagine how much fun it would be to recreate these pictures to the best of your ability? The more authentic the recreation, the better. You can then upload these images to Instagram and see which family member or friend wins the round? Or, you can just choose among yourselves, it is up to you. Look at the amazing pictures that other people have managed to recreate:


What You Need:

  • Old family pictures

6. Blindfolded Navigation Challenge

You’re probably quite comfortable moving through your house. You may have even thought that you could do it blindfolded at one point or another. The question is, can you really? This is what the Blindfolded Navigation challenge attempts to uncover. So, standing in one part of the house, you need to figure out what your final destination should be. It is a good idea to pick a route that doesn’t have too many dangerous obstacles so that you can’t hurt yourself. Also, you should avoid going up or down any stairs. Ideally, try having at least one other person there with you. Not only is it a lot safer, it is funnier this way too. Once you know where you want to go, it is time to slip the blindfold on and make your way there. See how it’s done here:


What You Need:

  • A blindfold

5. Teabag Challenge

Do you like having a cup of tea every now and then? You may change your mind about that after you have given this challenge a try. With this activity, you are going to need to open up a tea bag and empty the contents of it into your mouth. If this sounds easy enough, it isn’t. You are now going to have to swallow all of the tea leaves, without spitting any of them out. You also can’t drink any water to help you swallow the tea leaves. The first person to do this wins the challenge. It is guaranteed that you won’t find a cup of tea quite so charming anymore. Check out these twins reactions:

4. Footbath Ice Challenge

If you have ever been to a spa and had a nice, relaxing, scented footbath, you will be able to tell right away that this one is quite different. This challenge isn’t about calming you down but instead is about testing your tolerance level. You need to find bowls or buckets that are large enough to fit both of your feet. Then place lots and lots of ice in there along with some water. When you are sure that the water has gotten nice and icy, place both of your feet in. If you are doing this by yourself, you can use a stopwatch to time yourself. If you are playing with someone else, the first person to remove their feet loses. Check out this daughter-mom duo:

3. The Silent Library Challenge

Despite the name, the silent library challenge actually takes place in your home rather than a library. The key concept of the challenge is silence – while the game is going on, you can’t make a sound. You need to write a different bunch of dares on several pieces of paper. The pieces of paper are picked at random. Now, everyone has to perform their dares silently. This is why it is a good idea to come up with dares that will result in some sort of noise. For instance, to be tickled and not laugh. Here are some of the ideas that others came up with:

What You Need:

  • Dares of your own creation

2. Yoga Challenge

You have probably considered taking up a yoga class at some point or another. If you actually did, it is going to help you a great deal with the Yoga challenge. You are going to need a partner to help you out with this one. To add to the fun factor, it is great if you can get more people involved. You are also going to need to look up some couple yoga poses online. The goal here is to recreate these poses. You can start off with more simple poses and move onto the really difficult ones. You can’t move to the next pose unless you have successfully completed one. These girls really give it their all here:

What You Need:

  • A partner

1. 7 Second Challenge

The name of this challenge says it all. You have to complete a particular task within seven seconds. This is usually best played with two or more people. You are also going to need someone to count down the seconds for you. You can either find ideas online or you can come with activities yourself. Try to think of things that you usually take just a little longer than seven seconds to complete. This will make the task a lot more challenging for everyone. Make sure that all of the activities are safe to be done within this timeframe so that you don’t have to worry about anyone getting hurt! See how these sisters fare with it:
