5 Holi party games that promise loads of fun
Childhood was simple; we went prancing in the neighborhood and watched people dump buckets of colored water on each other, and return home to not get recognized by our own family! But today, it is all about the Holi parties, especially this year when the pandemic has finally given us a breather. Here are some fun games you can play at your Holi party.
Well, this is our desi version of paintball! Divide into two groups, spread across your courtyard or the street you're playing at, and keep an umpire aside--they'll be responsible for keeping count of how many balloons hit each team. Now start your water-balloon fight. To make things easier, each team should be assigned certain colored water balloons.
Find the coin
Take a tumbler and fill it with dark-colored water. Then toss in a coin and ask everyone to find it. Whoever finds the coin in the least time gets to be the winner. To make things more interesting, involve multiple players to search for the coin simultaneously and watch how many times they overturn the tumbler and splash around!
Fill lots of balloons with water and lay them out on the ground in three sections. Now bring in three participants for each section and give them a stipulated time of say 10 seconds within which they have to burst as many balloons as they can with their bare feet. This is hilarious to watch as many tend to trip over!
Pichkari to the rescue
Keep a bucket filled with water on one end of the ground and on the other end layout tumblers based on the number of participants you have. Give each player a pichkari and they have to start together to draw water from the same bucket, and then walk to the other end and fill their respective tumblers. Whoever fills their tumbler fastest wins!
This game should be played in pairs, where one person has to color the other one's face using gulaal but in an artistic fashion. Randomly smudging colors on your partner's face will not be considered face painting. They must complete the task in time, and bring their art pieces, erm art faces, to the judges who'll rank them based on the prettiest painting.
