Lights, Camera, Action!

What You'll Need:

  • Paper
  • Pen or Pencil
  • 3 Hats

Before the Party:

Each hat will represent a different element to a movie - the genre, the setting, and the conflict. Write several examples of each category on slips of paper and add them to their corresponding hats. View the examples below for ideas.


  • Genre - Comedy, Action, Drama, Horror, Musical
  • Setting - Beach, Campground, House, Mars, Antarctica, The North Pole
  • Conflict - A Bear is Eating Your Food, Aliens Have Just Landed, You Just Saw Bigfoot, You Are Lost, You Lost Your Shoes, Your Car Broke Down

During the Party:

Divide your guests into two groups. Each group picks a genre, setting, and conflict out of each hat. Each team has 10 minutes to come up with a short movie scene that incorporates each element they have chosen. Have the teams perform their scenes for the rest of the guests.
