We’ve come up with 10 super fun activities that your entire family can take part in and have a blast Check them out below.

1. Marshmallow Dodgeball
Fairly straight forward, marshmallow dodgeball uses the same rules as traditional dodgeball. First, gather up large marshmallows. Second, break people into two teams and create a line in the ground that should never be crossed. Next, start tossing oversized marshmallows at each other. The winning team gets S’mores galore!

2. Rubber Band Man
You’ll need tons of rubber bands for this game. You’ll also need at least 2 teams of three people. Within 2 minutes, each team is supposed to put as many rubber bands as possible on their rubber man or woman. The team with the most rubber bands on their rubber person wins!

3. Three Legged Dance Off
Grab a string to tie participant’s legs’ together. Once team members are tied together, they have to start dancing as best as possible. It’s that simple!

4. Will it Float
More of a guessing game than one of the interactive camping activities, Will it Float hedges players against each other when trying to guess whether or not a certain item will float in a glass bowl. You can throw items like cantaloupe, lollipop,  duct tape, or a can of tuna into the bowl and see if it floats for at least 7 seconds. Those who guess correctly win the game!

5. Soda Sock Swig
Grab a table and a 6 pack of soda. The game is kept secret until your 6 team members start to chug their soda the fastest and as you begin the countdown, stop and tell them they have to put their sock over the can. The one who chugs their soda the quickest wins!

6. Shake it Off
This game is messy, but super fun! Grab a jar of Vaseline, swim goggles, and a bag of cotton balls. Form 4 groups of 3. Make one person the Vaseline guy/girl. The rest of the team has 90 seconds to cover their face in Vaseline. Next, another team member puts cotton balls on their face. Finally, the “shakers” have to shake off as many of the cotton balls as possible in 60 seconds. The team with the most cotton balls on the ground wins!

7. Sippy Cup Suck Off
Pour coke into several sippy cups. The person who sucks down their coke the fastest wins the game!
